Importance of Counselors
The services counselors provide students are connected to
a comprehensive counseling model which focuses on the needs
of the students in three areas of development: academic, career,
and personal/social. These areas are interrelated and cannot
be addressed in isolation. Comprehensive, developmental counseling
services are designed for ALL students.
