Mission Statement

The mission of the New Manchester High School’s Counseling Program is to prepare all students for their post-secondary careers by providing a comprehensive school counseling program that imparts knowledge, teaches life skills, and molds their attitudes, mindsets, and behaviors towards their future. By utilizing evidence-based strategies and interventions that are data driven, we provide quality individual and small group counseling sessions, fun and engaging classroom core curriculum lessons, and supplemental career related activities that foster academic success and fundamental career preparation. Additionally we ensure that all students feel safe and supported as they learn and grow. As a team, we constantly collaborate with parents, faculty members, students, community liaisons and our Advisory Council to ensure that we are providing equity and access for all. As a result, we empower our students to become lifelong productive citizens.

Whether on a college campus, serving our country within the military, or actively participating in the world of work, our graduates are independent and critical thinkers, problem solvers, idea generators, leaders, and compassionate individuals who embrace and respect global diversity. They are lifelong learners who enrich both their families and their communities through steady occupation, charitable giving, and active participation in civic responsibilities.
