Mission of the School Counseling Program

The West Hartford School Counseling Program is based on the belief that every student is important and unique. Our mission is to guide all students toward the best possible educational opportunities in a supportive environment while promoting an understanding of self and others. School counselors strive to provide students with the necessary skills to become productive and healthy citizens. The School Counseling Program is developmental by design, focusing on needs, interests, and issues related to various stages of student growth in three domains: personal/social, academic, and career/post-secondary planning. School Counselors are here to support all students to succeed in school.

Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s school counselor with any questions or concerns that may arise during the school year.
