Our goal is to implement a proactive and preventative program that supports student achievement in the areas of academic, career, personal/social development, and post-secondary planning.


The school counseling program at Valhalla High School upholds a comprehensive and proactive school counseling program that prioritizes students’ academic, social-emotional, and career goals. We strive to create meaningful relationships with not only students but also parents, teachers, and any significant figure that will help us best support our students and helps us enable our students to be successful, lifelong learners, and productive citizens. With collaboration and strong relationships, the program is able to empower students and support them in maximizing their potential and talents. The VHS counseling program is committed to having a data-informed program in order to create academic success, socio-emotional growth, address college and career gaps, and equity for all students.


VISION

All students of Valhalla High School are unique and inclusive learners who will recognize their value and worth and will find their own personal way to contribute to our society.

Our students will graduate and be equipped with problem-solving, critical thinking, and leadership skills needed to accomplish both their short and long term goals.
