school counselors
  • What is a School Counselor?

    School counselors are certified educators with a minimum of a master's degree in school counseling and are uniquely qualified to address the needs of students. The school counseling program is data-driven to address the development of all students. We collaborate with all key stakeholders to benefit students. 

    We break our school counseling model into sections that include direct student services, indirect student services, program management and school support. 

    We provide standards-based developmentally approriate counseling curriculum for academic, personal/social, and career development for all students. We assist students to set goals and develop future plans. This is usually completed through guidance lessons that are taught in the classroom. This may also be accomplished through students helping with community service projects, career day, and speakers.

    We also provide responsive services via small group and individual counseling to meet students' immediate needs and concerns. All counseling sessions are intended to be short-term. If a student is needing long-term counseling, the parent may want to seek a LPC. Indirect services include referrals to other professionals or community agencies.

     

    We also consult and collaborate with other counselors', administrators, teachers, parents, and community partners in an effort to benefit students. 

     

    We are happy to serve our students and families!
