Centennial High School Counseling Program

  • We’ve designed our counseling program to address the diverse needs of all students by helping them to acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self and others, and educational and vocational development.  School counselors foster excellence by helping students to achieve their potential.  They promote life-long learning through their work in four key program areas:

    • Classroom presentations and large-group activities such as career days and college nights to help students learn coping skills, career planning/decision-making skills, and to plan for the future.

    • Individual student planning for academic and career success through the development and short-term and long-term educational and career plans.

    • Individual and small group counseling, consultation, and referral, related to helping students with personal goals and concerns, and with educational progress.

    • Management activities to support the counseling program as well as other school programs.

    The Counseling Center is located in Suite 145, near the Cougar Dining Hall.  Just as Centennial has a “dining hall” and not a “cafeteria,” it also has a “counseling center” and not a “guidance department.”  The subtle differences in name reflect subtle contrasts in philosophy and services.  We are specifically trained to provide social/emotional counseling and recognize each student’s mental health as an integral part of their academic success. Additionally, we are trained as academic and college and career counselors/advisors. 

    Time constraints and student load limit our personal counseling to short-term, crisis, and group counseling.  If a student or family needs help in locating an agency or counselor for long-term continuing counseling, our counselors can assist in that process.

     Students and their parents are encouraged to contact counselors for assistance if a need arises. Based on needs assessments and observed needs, the counseling creates programming to address the needs of ALL students.
