High School Counseling
To assist students in understanding and respecting self and others.
To enable students to develop decision-making competencies and career awareness.
As I work with your student this year, please be assured that I am bound by the Code of Ethics of the American School Counselor’s Association (ASCA). Parent and student confidentiality is protected to the extent allowed by law and school policy. Helping students meet their fullest potential is a combined effort of both school and home. If you have any questions about these groups, please contact me at (419) 826-3045 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
How Does a Parent/Guardian see a counselor?
Parents and guardians are welcome to meet with the counselors and are asked to make appointments in advance, to ensure that the counselor will be available. You may call or email your counselor to set-up a meeting!
How Does a Student see a counselor?
School counselors are advocates for students. They are available to assist and advise each student in the areas of personal/social, academic, and career domains. This includes personal/social concerns, academic concerns, career exploration & choices, course selections, college choices, scholarship applications, test score interpretation, setting goals, examining options, teacher/student relationships, and any special situations that may be important to a student.
Our conversations are confidential, however:
By law, school personnel are required to report child abuse, intent to harm oneself or others, and unlawful activity.
Information shared between a student and a counselor is confidential. We make every effort to follow the counseling guidelines contained in the American School Counselor Association Code of Ethics. This means we will keep the information you share with us confidential—unless you give us permission to share it, or unless we are required by law or school policy to share it.
