We believe that all students can develop academic, personal/social, and career readiness skills through a strength based comprehensive guidance program. The professional school counselors advocate for students by enhancing the school climate through school wide activities, guidance lessons, small group, and individual counseling sessions. Students will have opportunities to acquire knowledge and skills to reach their highest potential.

Guidance and Counseling: Program Components
RESPONSIVE SERVICEThe purpose of the Responsive Service component is to intervene with or on behalf of those students in Pre-k through 12th grades whose personal circumstance, concerns, or problems are threatening to interfere with or are interfering with their healthy personal, social, career and /or educational development.
SYSTEM SUPPORTThe System Support component describes management activities which assure the delivery of a high quality guidance program, and service which indirectly benefit students by supporting other programs.
GUIDANCE CURRICULUMThe Guidance Curriculum component includes skill-based lessons and units designed to help all students in kindergarten through 12th grade develop competence in essential life skills.
INDIVIDUAL PLANNINGThe Individual planning component is where students are guided in planning, monitoring and managing their own educational, career, personal and social development. Each student is provided with necessary steps toward his/her established goals.
