Purpose of the School Counseling Program: 

The purpose of the School Counseling Program in the school setting is to promote and enhance the learning process of every student. The role of counselors is to facilitate student development in the areas outlined in our district model as the Four Purposes of Education:  Personal Development, Essential Skills, Civic Responsibility, and Career Preparation.

The school counseling program has characteristics similar to other educational programs, including a scope and sequence, student competencies, activities and processes to assist students in achieving these outcomes, professionally licensed personnel, materials and resources, and accountability methods. Our emphasis is to help our students learn more effectively and efficiently.
