Guidance and School Counseling
The Office of School Counseling offers a host of programs to help every child meet their college and career goals, including academic planning for college. Through our School Counseling Programs, we work to ensure that all students will acquire and demonstrate competencies in the areas of academic, career and social/emotional development. We strive to make sure students acquire college and career readiness skills, pursue post-secondary degrees, and become responsible citizens, productive workers, and lifelong learners.
