Counseling Program at Central City Value

Mission 

The mission of the Central City Value High School Counseling Program is for all students to have equitable access to a data-driven multi-tier, multi-domain school counseling program that allows students to reach their fullest potential.  In collaboration with school leadership and community stakeholders, we provide holistic and comprehensive programs that promote self-advocacy and empowerment for all students through core-curriculum, small groups, individual counseling, and school-wide activities.

We advocate for individual uniqueness and respect, a safe and nurturing community, service to the community, and academic excellence by acknowledging the complex factors that influence students’ overall experiences. Together as an inclusive and welcoming school community our priority is to maximize students’ development in the areas of academic, social emotional, and college and career knowledge and skills.
