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!
