The school counseling program's primary goal is to assist all students in reaching
their academic potential by removing barriers to learning and preventatively assisting
students in acquiring life success skills.
As an integral component in the education system, school counselors provide a developmental,
comprehensive and continuous program of services from pre-kindergarten through high
school targeting the academic, career and personal / social development of all students.
Counseling, consultation, coordination, collaboration, guidance curriculum, and
program evaluation are the main delivery methods in a successful school counseling
program. School counseling achieves maximum effectiveness through the support and
collaboration of parents, teachers, administrators, and community members.
