At Chilton Middle School, we believe that relationships are an integral part of a student's learning experience. The comprehensive school counseling program at Chilton Middle School focuses on building these relationships in three different formats:

Classroom Counseling: Social emotional learning is emphasized to students in classroom counseling. Through these lessons, students learn and apply the skills necessary to manage their emotions, show empathy, make positive decisions, and navigate relationships. Classroom counseling is provided to 5th grade students, and social emotional education is continued in grades 6-8 health classes.

Small Group Counseling: Small groups provide added support for students with additional needs or concerns. These groups further explore social skills or other mental health concerns such as body image, stress/anxiety, or grief and loss. The topics of the small groups are selected based on the needs of the students and may change from year to year. These groups typically run 6-8 weeks.

Individual Counseling: Individual counseling is provided to students whose needs are not appropriate to be met in a small group format. These individual sessions may be provided to support students with academic challenges, mental health concerns, college/career planning, or goal setting. School counselors do not provided long-term, mental health therapy; however, resources for long-term mental health therapy can be provided!

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out!
