Counseling services are aimed at helping each student have the most successful school experience possible. Students are encouraged to expand their knowledge by building upon previous experiences, developing a deeper understanding of their strengths and needs, and gaining an understanding of themselves and their relationship to the changing world in which they live.

The guidance curriculum consists of structured experiences presented systematically through group activities. The purpose of the curriculum is to provide all students with information to plan and manage their own personal and career development, and their continued learning.

Counselors work with students in large and small groups as well as individually. Students who wish to work with others on finding solutions to concerns that prevent them from doing their best in school will have group counseling opportunities.

Counselors aid in the coordination of standardized test(s) such as the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) in grades 7 and 8, and Keystone Exams. Following receipt of test results, interpretation of results is offered.

Students may arrange for an appointment by completing a request form in the counseling center. If the need for a conference is urgent, students are asked to alert the guidance secretary who will see that a counselor contacts the student as soon as possible.

The Counseling Center has a number of resources to help parents work with adolescents. These resources are available to parents who request them.

School Counseling in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Supporting Every Student to College and Career Success

Pennsylvania requires all school districts to have a K-12 Guidance Plan as required by Chapter 339 Career and Technical Education Standards outlining services provided to students to establish a career plan. This plan includes a description of how guidance personnel provide to students the information necessary to make informed decisions regarding the selection of appropriate vocational-technical education programs and discuss the importance of high school academic achievement and postsecondary education and training to career success.
