The comprehensive school counseling program provides school-wide, small group, and individual support and interventions to remove barriers and support student growth in the realms of academic skills and knowledge, positive attitudes, and college/career readiness, while instilling the values of high expectations, life-long learning, appreciation of diversity, and responsible citizenship.
The comprehensive school counseling program supports students in reaching their full potential to be civically-minded, socially responsible, critical thinkers who are poised to be global leaders. This is achieved through advocacy for all students and assistance removing barriers to learning by utilizing up to date resources/information, timely support, and a program aligned with the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). All students will know that they are encouraged, supported, and prepared to be high achieving thinkers, learners, and leaders that take personal responsibility for their growth throughout their academic and professional careers in order to achieve their dreams.
