What Counselors Do

STUDENT SERVICES COUNSELORS at Mt. Mansfield Union High School assist students with academic, personal/social, and career development needs. School counselors are educators with specific training in understanding the needs of adolescents. Some of the many roles they serve in a school include:

Personal Counseling: School counselors may provide short term individual counseling for students and parents to provide support, information, and intervention in dealing with issues related to family, school peers, homework, etc. If needed, school counselors may provide group counseling for students dealing with similar issues.

Academic Planning: School counselors work with students on a yearly basis to make appropriate course selections, establish personal goals, and develop future plans.

College Planning: School counselors educate students and their families on the college process, including SAT/ACT testing. We assist in the search for suitable colleges and share information on financial aid and scholarships.

Career Awareness: School counselors provide opportunities and resources for students to explore careers and vocational interests through career interest inventories, internships, and job shadow experiences.

Consultation: School counselors routinely consult with parents, teachers, administrators, and outside agencies to develop relevant interventions that support the academic and personal growth of our students.
