Counseling Vision

All students within Prince George High School will benefit from a school counseling program that is developmental in nature, preventative in design, and comprehensive in scope. As an integral part of the total education program, credentialed school counselors will ensure access to services so that every student is challenged and supported to reach his or her highest potential.

Counseling Mission

The mission of the Prince George High School Counseling program aligns with the school vision. School counselors, as professional school advocates, will provide 10th - 12th grade students a comprehensive developmental counseling program that addresses the academic, college/career, and personal/social needs of each student within our diverse population. The program is delivered through counseling curriculum, individual planning, system support, and responsive services in partnership with educators, parents, and the community. Credentialed school counselors facilitate the support system to ensure that each student in the district are prepared academically and socially with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society. In unison with the students, staff, parents, and community members, the school counselor will facilitate a positive, supportive and culturally sensitive program that will ensure a school community that is a safe, healthy and nurturing environment for all.
