The role of a school counselor is vital to the growth of a successful school. The American School Counselor Association has set goals for school counselors to focus on the areas of academics, careers, and social/personal development. A school counselor is an advocate for students that collaborates with parents, teachers, community members, and administrators to ensure all students have the appropriate tools/skills to be successful at school. The school counseling center is a safe haven for students to have a chance to express their thoughts and feelings.
Mission Statement The mission of the KMS Counseling Department is to educate and empower all students to reach their potential by providing a comprehensive school counseling program. We strive to develop students’ academic skills, college/career awareness, and social/emotional needs to teach them how to be responsible and persevere through life’s changes.
