The Mission Statement: The counseling program actively promotes the academic, social and emotional success of all students through collaboration with students, parents, staff, and the community.

     Secondary school counselors enhance the learning process and promote academic achievement. School counseling programs are essential for students to achieve optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set appropriate career goals and realize full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of the world.

     The Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program was established as a tool to guide how counselors provide services and implement programs in Missouri to maximize student potential in school communities. The emphasis of a comprehensive program is addressing the needs of all students. The four major components of the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program that allow counselors to address both group and individual needs are guidance curriculum, responsive services, individual planning, and system supports.
