Counseling

Our Services

Direct Student Services

Direct services are in-person interactions between school counselors and students to facilitate academic success, college and career readiness, and personal/social development and can include the following:

  • School counseling core curriculum: This curriculum is delivered through the classroom and consists of structured lessons designed to help students attain the desired competencies and to provide all students with the knowledge, attitudes, and skills appropriate for their developmental level.
  • Individual student planning: Counselors coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students in establishing personal goals and developing future plans.
  • Responsive services: Responsive services are activities designed to meet students' immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.

Indirect Student Services

Indirect services are interactions with others (families, teachers, administrators, and community agencies) to help support the students in academic, career, and personal/social success.
