F.R.H.S.D. Compass: Charting a Future of Excellence in Education

Guidance Road Map – Charting a Course of Excellence in Education

Our District’s Strategic Plan, Compass 3.0, maps priorities and projects in four core areas, Whole Child, Equity & Opportunity, Student Growth and Learning, and Community Connections, that support the District mission.  The “Whole Child” component of Compass 3.0 outlines the District’s commitment to inspire individual student goals through a safe, healthy, challenging, engaging and supportive learning environment. Based on the American School Counselor Association National Model, Freehold Regional High School District (FRHSD) school counseling programs are collaborative efforts benefiting students, parents, teachers, and the overall community.

Our school counseling program is an integral part of students’ daily educational environment and school counselors are partners in student growth and serve as the students’ advocate.  School counselors prioritize supporting students to reach their personal goals in a complex, rapidly changing society through a system of intentional practices, programs, and counseling.  The FRHSD Guidance Road Map outlines a comprehensive counseling program organized by grade level highlighting the events, programs, and services offered to students.

Each of our six high schools has a Guidance and Counseling Services department.  Visit the school site for specific information.
