The Purpose of the School Counseling Department

The School Counseling Staff at Hopewell High School provides developmental, proactive, and preventative services for students. This involves a cooperative effort among students, staff members, parents, and the community. Our purpose is to empower all learners to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal, and social goals. We are here to help by working with academic issues, educational and career planning, as well as personal concerns.

The Role of the School Counselor

  • School counselors are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development.
  • School counselors help parents focus on ways to further the educational, personal, and social growth of students.
  • School counselors work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves.
  • School counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and compliment comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society.
  • Comprehensive school counseling programs are considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.
For more information on the role of the school counselor, please refer to "Why Secondary School Counselors?" by the American School Counselor Association.
