The counseling mission of Poolville Junior High is to create a positive school environment where each and every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally by providing personal and social development as well as career planning. We will strive to collaborate and communicate with all stakeholders to ensure a quality education for all students to become productive members of society.
Providing a rich environment where students can explore and have access to different types of careers in an important part of the development of the student. “ASCA National Standards for career development guide school counseling programs to provide the foundation for the acquisition of skills, attitudes and knowledge that enable students to make a successful transition from school to the world of work, and from job to job across the life-span” (ASCA, 2004) . It is our goal to enrich student understanding of what is available to them and how to gain the skills necessary to obtain the career of their dreams.
