School Counseling

The mission of the ACPS school counseling program is to provide a comprehensive and developmental counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and social-emotional development of all students. The school counseling program is an essential part of the total educational program. School counselors are advocates who provide support to maximize all students' potential and academic achievement. In partnership with educators, parents or guardians, and the community, school counselors establish a culture of high expectations where students are empowered to reach their potential while utilizing their unique abilities and interests.

For further information on the counseling program, counseling materials, or procedures by which a parent may limit a student's participation in the counseling program, please contact the school counselor in your child's school.
