Welcome to the Counseling Office!

The Counseling Office is open for all students and their families from 7:55 am to 4:25 pm (8 am to 3 pm during COVID Blended Learning).  During these times of social distancing, please contact your child's counselor to schedule an appointment if you need to meet in person.

The mission of the Counseling Office is to promote student development and encourage personal/social and career development by working collaboratively with students, families, staff and the community.  Our counselors provide academic, socio-personal and career/college support services to all students.  We understand that all students need help along the way and we feel that the earlier we provide that help, the faster students get back on the right track.  Below you will find the names and contact information of our counseling team, a listing of the major initiatives the we will undertake and some additional resources.
