Counseling Services

“High school years are full of growth, excitement, frustration, disappointment, and hope. It is the time when students begin to discover what the future holds for them. High school counselors enhance the learning process and promote academic achievement. School counseling programs are essential for students to achieve optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set appropriate career goals and realize full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of the world community.”  
American School Counselor Association, 2008
