The mission of the Lafayette High School counseling program aligns with the school mission, which is: to educate its diverse population, providing our students with the tools to become knowledgeable, productive, and resourceful members of a global society. School counselors, as professional advocates, will provide a comprehensive counseling program in order to address the academic, social/emotional, and career needs of all students. In addition, school counselors will promote mindsets and behaviors that enhance the learning process and create a culture of college and career ready students well prepared to meet the challenges and high expectations of the 21st century. The school counselors will facilitate a positive, supportive, and culturally sensitive program that will promote a school community that is a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for all. School counselors will lead a collaborative effort to design, implement, assess, and continuously improve the comprehensive data driven school counseling program.
