Welcome to PTHS Counseling!!

Our Mission
The mission of the Peters Township High School Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the personal/social, academic and career development of all students. School counselors are professional student advocates who provide support to maximize student potential and academic achievement. In partnership with other educators, parents or guardians and the community, school counselors assist all students in realizing their abilities, interests, and goals as they transition through the educational process to become successful members of society and life-long learners.
 
The school counselors are available to students in the counseling office every day during school hours. They are also available to parents for scheduled appointments, before, during and after school. The office is open daily from 7AM to 3PM.
 
We welcome you to view the tabs on the left for more specific information.  Our school profile can be found under the Academics tab.
