Essential Intent

The philosophy of the counseling program in the School District of the Chathams is that school counseling is an essential, integral part of the educational process. Counselors provide comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. As student advocates, counselors recognize the uniqueness, dignity and personal worth of each individual. In an interactive process, the counselor facilitates student academic achievement. Counselors work collaboratively with students, parents, educators and community members to support each student's ability to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
