LHS Counseling Mission Statement:

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.

The Professional School Counselors serving Lafayette High School believe:

  • All students have the ability to achieve and it is the school counselor’s role to be accessible to these students.
  • The counseling department must respect all students’ cultures, backgrounds, and values (including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status).
  • All students will have access to a comprehensive counseling program that focuses on academic, social/emotional, and career developmental needs.
  • The school counselor will be an advocate for all students, including collaborating with stakeholders for needed systemic change.
  • All students shall have access to a full-time, state certified, master’s degree level school counselor to plan, deliver, and manage the counseling program with input from all stakeholders.
  • The school counseling program will be continuously evaluated through data collection, and results will be used to enhance the effectiveness of the program.
  • The school counselors will participate in professional development activities to maintain, update, and enhance their skills.
  • The school counselors will abide by ASCA’s professional school counseling ethics (ASCA, 2004a).
