The primary aim of all counseling services and programs is to promote students' success in school. School counselors are student advocates who provide classroom guidance, individual academic, career and transition planning, and responsive services. Counselors are available to discuss every aspect of a student's life, frequently offering assistance in goal-setting, in problem-solving, and with challenges that arise both in and out of school. Guidance activities occur within both individual and group frameworks. Throughout the school year, school counselors meet with students and parents to review matters of mutual interest and concern. 

The Counseling Department is now using Remind to communicate information to students and parents.  Please click HERE for more details on Remind and click HERE for directions on how to sign up for Remind.
