The Douglas S Freeman School Counseling Department will provide a data-driven comprehensive school counseling program that focuses on academic, social/emotional, and college and career readiness skill development. Program implementations will provide a supportive and nurturing environment to assist all students in reaching their potential to become productive citizens. By using a variety of culturally and developmentally appropriate interventions and working in cohesion with faculty, staff, parents, and the community, we aim to support all students in becoming curious learners and just and generous citizens in the 21st century. The school counseling department will advocate for students from all backgrounds, races, genders, economic standing, disabilities, and religions in order to ensure they have access to and are actively engaged in diverse learning experiences that align with their long term goals. Students will leave DSF as empowered citizens who are capable of respect, compassion, and self-advocacy.

The vision of Douglas S Freeman High School counseling program is for all students to become resilient, life long-learners who are successful in their chosen career and contributing members of society. By collaborating with the school and larger community and through exposure to a comprehensive school counseling program, students will have the interpersonal intelligence and self-confidence to be successful in the 21st century and contribute to a global society. They will be equipped with the academic, social/emotional, and career readiness skills to embrace diversity in a changing world and initiate positive change in their community. Students from Douglas S. Freeman High School will be motivated, competent, high-achieving individuals who serve their community with excellence, intensity, and pride.
