We provide a comprehensive guidance program to all students to help build the foundation for life-long learning by assisting students in developing self-respect, awareness of others and positive learning attitudes. School counselors provide direct and indirect services and activities to students, families, and school staff for developing strategies that deal with education, personal and social challenges that may interfere with the educational process. The foundation for our Guidance and Counseling Program is a Competency-Based Counseling Program (CBCP), which emphasizes decision-making skill development and exploration of future educational and occupational possibilities. The program also stresses self-concept development and the acquisition of social skills needed for interpersonal relationships.
The purpose of the guidance program is to help each individual student achieve his/her highest growth mentally, emotionally, and socially. We try to do this in several ways:

Students with deployed parents or family members are able to participate in small group and individual counseling. This extra time with the counselor gives the students and opportunity to talk about and work through feelings related to the stress of deployment. This page is dedicated to those children and their parents. This is our effort to bridge the gap and offer our valued family members a piece of home.
Communities are not built of friends, or groups of people with similar styles, and taste, or even of people who like and understand each other. They are built of people who feel they are a part of something that is bigger than themselves.
