VHS Counseling Services

Mission Statement

The mission of our comprehensive school counseling program is to provide all students, regardless of individual differences, to acquire the educational, occupational, and personal/social competencies necessary to contribute and function in a complex and changing world.

Our Philosophy

Message to Parents and Students

We believe that each student is a unique individual with different physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics. Each individual, given the respect, motivation, and learning environment, can develop a positive self-image that will, in turn, help the student make the necessary progress toward the attainment of his or her goals.

A student's self-image is formed from past experiences by successes and failures.  A healthy self-image must encompass a realistic appraisal of one's capabilities and also a realization that one can be successful in life.  As counselors, we strive to assist all students with their personal/social, academic, and career development, which will allow the successful completion of a high school program and their becoming a successful contributor to the world around them.

Personal and Social Development

  • Help develop positive attitudes among students towards self, family, and community.
  • Help students identify strengths and develop skills to cope with their personal issues.
  • Work with students to understand and appreciate their unique qualities and to grow personally and socially.
  • Provide educational and support services to parents.
  • Provide consultation services to teachers.
  • Facilitate referrals to community support services.

Academic Development

  • Support students in developing an educational plan for academic success.
  • Assist students to become invested in their school success by showing them how school performance relates to career opportunities.
  • Work collaboratively with students, parents, and teachers to identify and help to remove obstacles that may hinder student achievement.
  • Provide information about different academic opportunities both within and outside of Valley High School.
  • Assist students and parents with information about the college planning process.
