School Counseling Department

The purpose of the school counseling department is to assist students in developing a high school program that will prepare them for their post-secondary goals as well to assist students with personal/social needs. Counselors are available for individual consultation to help students with academic, personal/social, and career development. The School Counseling Department has five school counselors, a VCAC College Adviser, a Registrar, and a Counseling Receptionist. The department also benefits from services provided by a representative from Educational Opportunities, and a Therapeutic Day Treatment school-based counselor provided through the National Counseling Group.
