School Counseling Program Beliefs 

Gordon County Schools

We believe effective school counseling programs:

· teach life skills

· are for all students

· are proactive and preventative

· are competency based and goal oriented

· provide a safe place for problem solving

· help students develop into successful adults

· are an integral part of a total school program

· understand and value the students’ capabilities

· facilitate and support the reciprocal integration of curriculum

· include career, academic, personal and social issues and are age appropriate in nature

· promote a healthy school culture which is supportive and collaborative among all stakeholders



Classroom Guidance
The foundation for the instruction of life skills meets the American School Counselor Association national model in the domains of:
Academic Achievement
Career Exploration
Personal/Social Growth

Student Advisement
All students receive consultation regarding graduation requirements and post secondary planning from their academic advisors.  This process is led by the school counselors. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to prepare for life after high school, which includes the opportunity to participate in rigorous and academically challenging courses and programs and access to college or some other form of postsecondary education upon graduation. Education is essential in today’s world, and we want our students to have the best life has to offer. The following are some ideas we want our students to learn and assimilate into their regular high school program of study:

• There are many different types of colleges and postsecondary educational opportunities. 
• Education and training are essential for career success. 
• The choices that students make in middle and high school will affect what choices they will have when they graduate. 
• It is important to begin planning for one's college and career as early as possible. 
• The involvement of family and/or supporting adults is part of academic planning and future success.
• And, last but certainly not least, education pays.

Parent Consultation

Counselors are available by appointment to assist parents with concerns regarding their students. Please call 706.602.0320 to schedule an appointment with your child's counselor. 

Responsive Services

Counselors respond to the needs of students, staff and community in times of crisis.

Individual Counseling 

Personal, social and academic counseling are available during the school day. It should be noted that individual counseling is not therapeutic in nature, as it is beyond the role of the school counselor to conduct in-depth, on-going individual sessions. Sessions are kept confidential except when students disclose that they are being hurt, are hurting someone else, or want to hurt themselves.
