About School Counseling

  • School counselors work with students, teachers, staff, and parents to prepare students for their futures. School counselors assist students with academic issues, personal/social challenges, and help students build career and college readiness skills.  

    School counseling services include: classroom guidance lessons, short term individual counseling, small group counseling, staff/parent consultation on student behavior and academic, social and emotional concerns, 504 case management, parent consultation, parent education, and community resource referrals.   

    Please Note: School counselors do not provide on-going individual counseling or therapy in the school setting. Referrals to outside agencies and services are available for your child upon request for a wide range of mental health or situational concerns. 

    Statement of Confidentiality:  The counseling relationship between students and their school counselor requires an atmosphere of trust and confidence. Students will be informed that exceptions to confidentiality exist in which counselors must inform others of information they obtained in the counseling relationship in order to prevent serious and foreseeable harm to students themselves or others, or if the information is legally required to be shared.
