Mission Statement: 

The mission of the Southwest Edgecombe High School Counseling department, in partnership with our educators, administration, parents/guardians, and community stakeholders is to advocate for all learners through creating an equitable and accessible school environment by collaborating with stakeholders to remove barriers.  Through participation in the data-driven school counseling program, all students--regardless of their race, ethnicity, ability, gender, socio-economic status, or sexual orientation--will develop long-term self-directed, realistic, and responsible decision-making skills, as well as grow consistent attitudes and behaviors that will help them to achieve their future goals. 

Counseling Vision Statement: 

The vision of the Southwest Edgecombe High School comprehensive school counseling program is to provide equitable access to our program for all students, and that this program serve as an integral piece of the overall educational experience, so that each student can complete high school, and become college and career ready.   All students will possess the academic skills to be lifelong learners, the social-emotional skills to be global leaders, and are excited to enter into careers that contribute to their community.   They realize their value and worth, appreciate diversity, can make self-directed and responsible decisions, effectively display empathy, and are resilient through long and short-term challenges.
