Our Program expectations:

  • A collaborative effort among school counselors, administration, and teachers to coordinate with the parents and the community to support students from the transition to high school to post-secondary choices
  • Classroom lessons, activities, and counsel are based upon the American School Counselor Association’s National Standards, which incorporate the academic, career and personal/social domains
