As student advocates, counselors strive to encourage each student to explore and evaluate choices that will expand his/her unique opportunities, while avoiding decisions that may hinder or limit future options.
The program includes personal development, basic life skills and supportive programs. Some of the services provided by the counselors include academic planning, college and career planning and supervision, administration, and interpretation of various educational tests. Counselors meet with parent(s)/guardian(s) during informational meetings, staffings and for academic advising. Counselors serve as advocates for students at Disciplinary Board hearings and as facilitators for administrators, teachers, parents/guardians and students.
The counselors coordinate and facilitate various school groups throughout the school community. Orientation for new students and parent(s)/guardian(s) is also a function of the counselors. The counselors publish the Freshman/Sophomore and Junior/Senior Counseling Clips Newsletter, college resource calendar and informational booklets.
The Counseling Department’s focus, through mutual respect and consideration, is to help students attain individual goals, as well as, fostering their commitments to the general good of society in our diverse and evolving global community.
