School Counseling

The mission of the school counseling program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. Counselors will work with educators, parents or guardians, and the community to facilitate a support system, ensuring that all students at Pathways Academy of Technology and Design are prepared to perform at the highest level and become contributing members of society.

School counselors will:

  • Provide individual planning sessions and classroom guidance lessons to students in the areas of academic planning and success, career awareness and social/emotional development in accordance with planned objectives for grade level.
  • Conduct structured, goal-oriented counseling sessions in systematic response to identified needs of groups of children. Themes include: academic skill building, social skill development, career awareness, conflict resolution, family issues, making healthy choices, etc.
  • Provide information and skills to parents, school staff, administration and the community to assist them in helping students in academic, career and personal/social development.
