Classroom Lessons

School counselors conduct classroom lessons and activities throughout the year that cover the three counseling domains: academic, personal-social, and career.  Specific lessons may include study skills, career exploration, bullying prevention, and character education.

Coordination & Consultation Services

The counseling department coordinates a variety of special programs within our school:  orientation, character education, peer mediation, scheduling, and placement of new students.  We are also responsible for coordinating SOL testing as well as report cards.

Counselors also serve as liaisons among various groups of people that are involved in student success.  In our efforts to meet the needs of all students, we work with teachers, administrators, parents or guardians, students, and community members.
