COUNSELING SERVICES INCLUDING SCHOOL COUNSELORS (FORMERLY GUIDANCE COUNSELORS)

The professional school counselors at Concord High School provide a full range of services to address the developmental needs of all students.  Services are provided both individually and in groups. The Counseling and Guidance Department also conducts outreach programs for both parents and students and maintains communication with sending schools and community agencies.

I.     The School Counseling Department is committed to assisting students with all aspects of their school experience. Counselors provide orientation activities for new students, consultation with teachers and specialists, tours, workshops on college admissions and financial aid,  information about PSAT/ SAT/ACT testing, and coordination of college, career and military information. Counselors assist students in the evaluation of their academic progress through program planning, scheduling classes, referral for diagnostic testing and the discussion of career and educational opportunities.

II.   Aware that learning is affected by all aspects of a student’s world, the department is available for short term counseling, crisis intervention,  and consultation and referral to outside resources to help students with personal difficulties. Students can feel confident that trained counselors are bound by professional ethics to distinguish personal confidential matters and ensure privacy and assistance.

III. Counselors are available during all periods of the school day on an appointment basis. Students should schedule an appointment at least a day before they want to see a counselor. During busy periods, it is necessary to schedule an appointment even earlier. If there is an emergency, it is always possible for a student to see a counselor at once. It is very important for students to keep their appointments so as not to keep other students needlessly waiting. Whenever possible, students should meet with counselors during study hall, open periods or lunch.

IV. Guidance Counselors return to school two weeks prior to the beginning of the school year. Please contact the Student Services office 225-0800, ext. 6051, to arrange an appointment during this time.
