Supporting Students Personally and Academically

Our counselors provide a comprehensive school counseling program to help you meet your academic, career and personal/social needs. School counselors are professional student advocates who provide support to maximize your potential and academic achievement. In partnership with educators, families and the community, licensed school counselors will help to ensure that you are prepared academically and socially with the knowledge and skills to contribute at your highest level in high school and in life.

School counseling is a process of helping you by assisting you in making decisions and changing behavior. This process enables you to make changes in your life by looking at your thoughts, feelings, behaviors and ways of getting along with others. School counseling can help you understand yourself better and make the best decisions. The overall goals are to develop a better awareness of feelings, make the most of strengths and abilities, and change behavior that is not working. Growth and change happen gradually through gaining insight into problems, deciding on a plan for change, and practicing new behaviors.

We provide individual and classroom sessions to guide and assist you through a wide variety of personal/social, academic and post-secondary planning needs. We are also involved with new student registration, scheduling, building transitions, consultation with parents and teachers, 504 case management, information about outside agencies and overall coordination of the school counseling program.

Note: Any information a student shares with their counselor will remain confidential except in cases where the student indicates the potential for self harm or harm to another individual. In addition, Minnesota law mandates us, along with all school staff, to report any allegations of child abuse/neglect.
