Counselors provide direct student services through Individual Planning, Guidance Curriculum, and Responsive Services.

Individual Planning
Counselors provide all students with opportunities to learn and reflect on their personal and academic goals by providing:

  • Small group College and Career Readiness information presentations for 7th graders
  • Individual appointments with 8th grade students and their parent/guardian to discuss the high school transition and college options
  • Meetings with parent/student upon requests

Responsive Services

Often times friends, teachers, administrations, and parents refer a student who may benefit from counseling. Counselors are available in their offices throughout the day to help students and parents with any concern, which may include:

  • Friends
  • Grief and Loss
  • Family
  • Crisis
  • Bullying
  • Academic
  • Personal/ Social Issues 

Guidance Curriculum
Counselors present information in small group, classroom, and individual settings. Examples of presentations/lessons are:

  • Bullying Prevention

  • Emotional Self-regulation
  • College and Career Readiness Lessons
  • Suicide Prevention
