Our Comprehensive Guidance Program consists of: 

Individual Planning - Counselors meet one-on-one with students as they plan, monitor, and manage their own educational, career, and personal-social development.

Responsive Services - Counselors assist students whose immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued personal-social, career, and/or educational development at risk.  These services can be provided through individual or small group counseling.

Guidance Curriculum - Guidance lessons are delivered in various classrooms throughout the year and are used to help students develop basic life skills.

System Support - Counselors provide services in other areas which indirectly benefit students, such as consulting with teachers and attending counseling staff development
