The purpose of the Guidance and Counseling program is to assist students as they identify and realize their personal goals. This is achieved through counseling, consultation, and coordination.
Counseling is provided in individual, small, and large group settings. Topics include career/life planning, college advisement, decision making, social skills, development, transitional adjustments as students move from grade to grade, crisis intervention, peer relations, and academic planning. Each student completes an annual review that incorporates academic planning, course selection, and post high school plans.
Consultation services include conferences with parents, teachers, school support services, and administrators. We encourage students to participate in the development of personal plans that will influence their future.
Coordination activities include college/university/armed services visits, career speakers, national testing information, community services, job training coordinators, and referral services.
We encourage students and parents to call on us with questions or concerns regarding academics, vocational, or personal goals.
