School Counseling

School counselors are an integral part of the learning environment and support students and families in many ways. The Virginia Department of Education describes the state wide school counseling program as: 

"School counseling programs support the Standards of Learning by providing guidance to students in their academic, career, and personal and social development. School counselors collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators and others to promote learning and help students establish and achieve their education, career, and personal goals. School counselors provide leadership to ensure that students benefit from effective strategies and services aligned with the Standards for School Counseling Programs in Virginia Public Schools. The standards are organized by grade level under the following goals:

  • Academic Development – Students will acquire the academic preparation essential to choose from a variety of educational, training, and employment options upon completion of secondary school.
  • Career Development – Students will investigate the world of work in order to make informed career decisions.
  • Personal/Social Development – Students will acquire an understanding of, and respect for, self and others, and the skills to be responsible citizens."
