The Role of a School Counselor
The Counseling Office at Valhalla is a very active and busy place. School counselors spend time meeting with students discussing academics, college and career plans, and assisting with social/emotional needs. School counselors also build student schedules, present college and career information, assist students with 4-year planning, serve as advisers for clubs, and organize large events such as Parent Nights, PSAT testing, Senior Awards Night, College & Career Signing Day, Freshmen Seeking Out Success (SOS) Week, and MORE. All school counselors are P.P.S. credentialed and hold Masters degrees in Educational Counseling. 

So that we can assist you promptly, please refer to this chart to contact the correct person to address your issue or concern. Phone numbers and email addresses for all personnel are listed on the Valhalla Website.
