Counseling Center


The Counseling Center provides a comprehensive, developmental program that meets the personal, social, emotional, academic, college, and career development needs of each individual student. Our professional counselors provide support in a warm, inviting, and safe environment where students are always welcome and important. We provide services to maximize students' potential and achievement while fostering the independence and self-expression required for lifelong learning.  In partnership with teachers, administrators, parents, and guardians, school counselors assist students as they learn to be effective problem solvers, responsible decision-makers, and critical thinkers who will become independent, productive members of society.
