Adams 12 Five Star Schools School Counseling

Mission Statement

District Counseling supports the development of the whole child by advocating for academic, social/emotional, career and postsecondary needs and strives to develop life-long learners and productive citizens.

Vision Statement

The Adams 12 Five Star Schools Counseling program works collaboratively with parents, community member and educators to empower every child, regardless of individual differences or obstacles, to ensure all students are prepared for meaningful, productive learning through a data-driven comprehensive school counseling program. 

Role of the School Counselor 

School counselors are certified/licensed educations with a minimum of a master's degree in school counseling, making them uniquely qualified to develop a school counseling program that improves student achievement and enhances the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. School counselors also provide leadership and advocacy to promote equity and access to opportunities and rigorous educational experiences for all students.

We encourage parents and students to talk to their school counselor if they need assistance to plan for the future or to stay on track in school.
