The Student Assistance Counselor Program was developed to enhance and support students’ success in the school environment. We offer a range of school-based prevention and intervention services to assist students with personal problems and encourage them to build upon their strengths.
 
Our goals are to support and empower students to build upon their existing developmental assets. This includes developing positive and healthy boundaries and expectations of themselves and others, fostering a commitment to learning, developing positive values which guide choices, and building social competencies to encourage positive identity development.
