Welcome to Counselor's Corner

  • The mission of the Mont Vernon Village School Counseling program is to provide a developmentally appropriate School Counseling Program that supports the academic, social, emotional and career planning needs of all students. This program shall be comprehensive, proactive and responsive in nature and will be continually evaluated and improved through ongoing professional development; data collection; and collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators and the community as a whole.

    The School Counseling programs are based on the American School Counselors National Model and encompass a combination of four program components: Guidance Curriculum, Individual Planning, Responsive Services, System Support and Program Development.

    Counseling Services include individual and group counseling and can be accessed through parent request, teacher recommendation and crisis intervention. Students are also encouraged to self-refer. Counseling focuses on problem solving, decision making, academic, personal and interpersonal/social concerns.

    Specific groups are offered to address:

    • social skills

    • social pragmatics

    • friendship issues

    • changing families

    • grief and loss

    • new students

    • other topics

    If you are interested in having your child meet with the school counselor as a support either individually or in a group, please let us know. We are happy to lend any support to make your child’s school experience a success.
