Counseling Services

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

The Mission of Southmont Schools Counseling Services, in partnership with other educators, parents/guardians, and the community, is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students, and ensures that they are self-directed, lifelong learners who are prepared to become productive and responsible citizens.

Counseling services are available to all students in our district.  The role of the school counselor is to provide services for students who may have personal issues affecting their lives, including social, school and/or home.  School counselors also help establish lines of communication between staff and students, and proivde career, occupational, and academic guidance.

The counseling department, particularly at the junior and senior high schools, maintains a library of information on colleges, financial aid opportunities, and vocational information for students, faculty and community use.  Detailed information on most post-secondary institutions in Indiana is available.

Experienced, licensed counselors are available daily and by appointment.  Strict confidentiality is maintained.

All Southmont Schools' Counseling Programs are recognized as ASCA Model Programs and have been awarded The Indiana Gold Star School Counseling Award.
