Student Counseling

School Counselors work with students in three broad domains: academic, college/career and social/emotional development. These domains promote mindsets and behaviors that enhance the learning process and create a culture of college and career readiness for all students. The definitions of each domain are as follows:

Academic Development – School counseling programs implement strategies and activities to support and maximize each student’s ability to learn.

College and Career Development – School counseling programs help students 1) plan for and make a successful transition from school to post-secondary education and/or the world of work and 2) understand the connection between school and the world of work.

Social/Emotional Development – School counseling programs help students manage emotions and learn and apply interpersonal skills.

Hours of availability are the same as those of classroom teachers, 9 am - 11 am and 1 pm to 3 pm Monday through Friday.

You may also reach us by email, or you can call or text the phone number listed to the left.
