Welcome to #JDGuidance! Our Counseling Department at Jefferson Davis High School offers students and parents a diverse group of counseling professionals to help navigate high school and future planning. Our team of professionals seek to ensure the "high school experience" provides a smooth transition into each major phase of a students life. We work together to provide a comprehensive counseling program for all students. We seek to prepare every student socially, academically and emotionally for present and future challenges. The counseling program provides a proactive system designed to anticipate and facilitate the academic, career and personal/social/emotional development of students.

Counselors meet with students individually or in small groups to address social, emotional or academic needs. We provide classroom lessons to help students acquire interpersonal/social skills, career awareness/exploration and study/organizational skills. In addition, counselors are available to conference with parents, both individually and with teachers.
