Counseling Services


Each student has access to a school counselor and school social worker who will assist them with academic and personal counseling concerns. The department is able to work with the students on a short-term, solution-focused basis. The Counselors will schedule meeting dates for each student during the academic year. Students, teachers, and parents may provide referrals or request counseling services. Some of those services include:

  • Counseling services 
  • College counseling 
  • Individual/ Group counseling 
  • Placement services 
  • Occupational information services
