Vision Statement:

My vision is to assist the students with developing tools and skills to empower all students to reach their maximum potential. My goal is to create a comprehensive program that addresses academic, personal/social, physical, and career goals.  We want to provide the students with an unique and stimulating environment where they can grow mentally, emotionally, and socially. The comprehensive counseling program will encourage personal inquiry and growth, social responsibility, and academic excellence.  


We are building students that shape the world one step at a time!
