School Counseling

  • Mission and Vision

    To provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students in grades 6-8.  In partnership with other educators, child study team members, the school nurse, school psychologist, parents/guardians, and the community, school counselors will facilitate a proactive support system necessary to ensure that all students at Okeeheelee Middle School have access to, and are prepared with, the knowledge and skills essential to contribute as lifelong, self-directed learners and responsible, productive members of society.

    What Do School Counselors Do?

    Middle school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills. We implement a school counseling program to support students through this important developmental period. The school counseling program provides education, prevention and intervention activities, which are integrated into all aspects of students’ lives. The program teaches students the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for academic, career and social/ emotional development. We offer individual counseling, small group counseling and classroom guidance. (ASCA, 2019)
