Why Middle School Counseling?

Middle School Counselors support the academic, social/emotional, and career development of students through a comprehensive school counseling curriculum, individual student services, responsive services, and systems support.  These take many forms including individual and small group counseling, and classroom and school-wide lessons.  Utilizing a mental health perspective, school counselors help guide and support students through challenges and celebrate their achievements.

"Today’s young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies, and expanding opportunities. To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, leaders and citizens, every student needs support, guidance and opportunities during adolescence, a time of rapid growth and change. Early adolescents face unique and diverse challenges, both personally and developmentally, that have an impact on academic achievement."(American School Counselor Association, 2016)

Please visit the individual, small group, and classroom lessons pages for more information on how a comprehensive school counseling curriculum helps support your child.
