Our mission is to provide all students with a comprehensive school-counseling program, centered around an engaging curriculum that encourages the highest level of resiliency, social/emotional growth, college/career and academic achievement. In partnering with teachers, administrators and a caring community, school counselors advocate for all students and help them become successful lifelong learners and problem solvers.
Our school counseling program aims to help students:
- Understand the skills needed to achieve academically and deal with academic challenges
- Learn how to manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills
- Discover skills and interests, and understand the options that are available in their future following graduation
Services provided by the school counselors are available to ALL students. When needed, and in consultation with the parents/guardians of a student, school counselors will seek referrals for additional support through our partnership with Syntero.
If you have a counseling or crisis emergency that is after school hours and/or cannot wait until the next school day, please reach out to one of these resources.Mental health emergency hotline:
