Central High counselors are here to advocate for all students, collaborate with school staff, families, and community resources. This comprehensive, standard based school counseling program encourages students to reach their highest potential. Central counselors will focus on key issues that impact student success. These focus areas include regular school attendance, advancing on grade level and graduation, and preparation for all post secondary/career opportunities. We look forward to working with you!
The CHS Counseling Department consists of ten counselors, a social worker and community counselor. Students are assigned a counselor by alphabet. In addition, students work with additional counselors who present specialized activities in various areas related to academic achievement, personal- social development, career awareness, and college planning, Counselors meet with students individually, in small groups, and in various classroom presentations. In addition, counselors provide large group workshops at various school events for students, families, and community.
