West Covina High School Counselors

“To Make Connections and Build Bright Futures With All Students”

The mission of the counseling department and student support services at West Covina High School, based on the National Standards for School Counseling programs, is to ensure that all students are adequately prepared in the academic, career and personal/social domains. The comprehensive model continually examines current data to determine student needs, student services, and adjusts developmental programs in order to provide equity and equality among all student groups. The counselors' goal is to provide a safe environment motivating all students to become lifelong learners and responsible individuals who possess self-knowledge and global awareness. 

You will find information about the services provided in the counseling department on different parts of the counseling department website. If you have any questions please contact your student's counselor.
