Vandegrift High School Counseling Services

Welcome to VHS Counseling Services

The VHS Counseling Department aims to help meet the needs of the students and families in our Vandegrift community. 

Our Mission

The mission of the VHS Counseling team is first and foremost to build relational capacity with students, parents, faculty, and the larger VHS Community in order to promote social emotional well-being, confidence in an academic plan, and options for future endeavors in college and career pathways. As an extension of the VHS administration and faculty our mission is to begin the signature VHS experience for all who walk through our doors. We aim to create a safe space where all VHS students can thrive and celebrate the unique facets and intersections of their identities including racial/ethnic background, culture, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, and immigration status.

Our VHS Counseling team believes in a growth mindset in continuing to critically analyze our processes and procedures to create best practice for our students, parents, and community. We are dedicated to fighting against racism, classism, xenophobia, queerphobia, and ableism. Lastly, collaboration among a strong united counseling team enables us to serve our students, parents, faculty and community.
