School Counseling

Throughout a child's education, school counselors are here to help support students and advocate for the equity, access, and success of every student. School counselors collaborate with classroom teachers, support staff, professional staff, parents, and community partners to maximize the development of educational, career, personal, and social skills that students need to thrive as responsible citizens in a diverse and changing world.
