Our Mission

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.
