The Calvert County school counseling program is an integral part of every student's educational experience. It is a developmentally appropriate and sequentially planned program for all students. This program is directed toward assisting the students in understanding themselves as unique individuals and productive members of society who are cognizant of their rights and responsibilities. Furthermore, it assists students in making decisions and career and college choices appropriate to their developmental needs. The school counseling program is concerned with the personal/social development, career and college preparation, and academic development of the student. This program is designed to encourage the maximum growth and development of each student.
The school counseling program addresses issues such as academic performance, interpersonal relationships, career and college planning, school adjustment, and appropriate school behavior. Other issues may include: character education, self concept, study skills, abuse and neglect, drug abuse prevention, suicide prevention, decision making, death, divorce, and other age-appropriate concerns of children. Delivery of services is provided through individual and group counseling, classroom guidance, teacher and parent consultation, parenting programs, community agency contacts, and participation in a variety of school teams.
The school counselor is a school-based professional specifically trained to work with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community. All schools in Calvert County are staffed with full-time counselors who are available to meet with students and parents. Counselors may be reached by calling the school office.
