Counselor's Corner

Mission Statement:  The GATES High School Counseling Department strives to provide a comprehensive, developmental guidance and counseling program based upon the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) model. We focus upon three areas for helping GATES students grow and succeed: 1. academic development, 2. personal/social development, and 3. career development. 

 

The GHS Counseling Department provides:

 

1. School counseling core curriculum: lessons and activities delivered in Check & Connect and GATES Success Academy, and designed to boost all students' academic, personal/social and career development.

 

2. Individual student planning:  ​​each GATES student is provided with a graduation plan and assisted in the development of their High School and Beyond Plan. 

 

3. Responsive services:  ​​services designed to meet students' immediate concerns/needs via short-term counseling or referrals to partner agencies. 

 

4. System support: activities aimed to help us better develop, maintain and grow the counseling program.

 

To graduation...and beyond!
