Counseling Department Philosophy

The team concept in counseling means that counselors, counseling staff and administrators work together to meet the needs of the students. The goal of the counseling team is to help students develop and work toward their educational, personal and career goals.

Students are assigned to counselors based on their grade level. Assignments and contact information are listed on the Counseling Staff page below each counselor's name.
