The mission of the Northern Highlands’ School Counseling Department is to provide for the educational, career, and social/emotional needs of our students.  In collaboration with staff, parents, and our community, we seek to strengthen students’ decision-making skills; to encourage students’ exploration of their interests; to broaden their awareness of themselves and the community/world around them; and to realize their potential in creating and achieving goals and opportunities in the future. The counselors strive to enable students to acquire the educational and social competencies needed for their growth toward lifelong success and effective, responsible citizenship in a diverse and changing world.
