A school counselor is a certified, trained and caring professional who works with all students, parents, teachers, staff and the community in order for each student to be successful academically and socially. School Counseling services are delivered in three specific ways:

  • School Guidance Curriculum - designing, structuring, and delivering classroom lessons designed to achieve specific competencies in all grades (personal/social, academic, career) and driven by the needs of the school population.
  • Responsive Services – meeting immediate student needs (individual counseling, group counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, referral, information-providing).
  • System Support-school wide program planning and implementation (PBIS, Leadership Teaming, etc.), consulting with other professionals, coordination of various supports for students and families.
