How Deans and Academic Counselors Help...

A dean or an academic counselor works with staff, students, parents and the community to provide developmental assistance to students. They are dedicated to promoting a positive and safe school environment and improving the academic achievements of all students. Academic counselors and deans help eliminate barriers to success by facilitating access to information, resources and support services appropriate to each student's needs.

Deans and academic counselors assist students in planning, monitoring, and understanding their own educational and personal development. They play an important role in helping students explore academic options and transition from one grade level to the next.

Counselors and Deans help students:

  • identify and develop broad career options through flexible individual graduation plans

  • re-evaluate and revise graduation plans based on their developing interests, talents, and aptitudes

The mission of the school counselor is to provide a proactive comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.  

Through a partnership with parents/guardians, staff, and community members, every student is supported and enabled to become a successful, productive citizen and lifelong learner in a diverse and ever changing world.
