Counselors are available on a drop-in basis and/or by appointment. Counselors meet with students and families around academic concerns, post high school planning, and personal issues. Counselors respond to individual students in crisis as well as situations affecting the entire school.
Counseling services are based on the three tenets:
- Talking to a counselor is voluntary.
- Except in cases of personal safety, what a student says is confidential.
- The responsibility for solving a problem belongs to the student.
