The mission of the Counseling Department is to guide each student in the development and completion of an engaging and challenging academic program that will prepare the student for a successful transition to post-secondary education. The counselors are also dedicated to helping students mature in their decision-making, values clarification and interpersonal relationships. These goals are accomplished by meeting with students individually, in small groups and in classroom settings.
Students have the same counselor throughout their four years at Salpointe, allowing them to create a strong relationship that provides outstanding support and guidance. During senior year, the college counselor works with the student and senior class counselor to navigate college choices, applications and decisions. Students are also encouraged to take the initiative and cultivate a personal relationship with at least one member of the faculty with whom they can discuss any matter of academic or personal interest.
