Counseling Services

About Us
The Peters Township School District provides guidance counselors at all levels. Counseling services address academic, social, emotional and / or vocational issues with students and their families. In addition, the counselors strive to assist each student in adjusting to his / her environment and to aid in solving problems. Parental involvement is encouraged, with conferences scheduled as needed.

In addition to Counseling Services, the District provides support through Intermediate Unit 1 and other contracted agencies for students as needed. These services include an intervention specialist and social workers. School psychologists are available through the Intermediate Unit 1 and independent contractors as well.

Counseling Curriculum
Each level in the district has a written, articulated guidance curriculum. Academic, career, and social development are addressed throughout the school year. Specific programs such as PATHS and Gateways have been included.

Counseling Programs and Activities
Our Guidance Services offer different programs and activities designed to meet the academic, career and social needs of the students. These include:
  • Career Day
  • College Fairs
  • Parent and Student Orientations
  • Move-up Days
  • New Student Programs
Our guidance counselors provide additional support through participation in STAR and IST teams, student scheduling, and standardized testing. More information about each school's guidance programs can be found on each school's web site.
