Our Mission

Counselors work together in partnership with the community to promote the development of each student's academic, social/emotional, and career potential.  Through a comprehensive counseling program, counselors assist all students in realizing their abilities, interests and goals as they transition through the educational process to become successful members of society & life-long learners.

We are aligned with the Massachusetts Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs.  It is a comprehensive preventative program based on the developmental needs of students.  Every student benefits from the program and is an integral part of the total educational program for student success.
