The overall mission of the York Counseling Department is to form strong connections with York students and families. Through these connections, counselors support student's development through the areas of academic, career/college/post-secondary and social/emotional growth. An underlying theme throughout the work of your student's counselor is "self-advocacy". Self-advocacy, that is the individual's ability to effectively communicate, convey, negotiate or assert their own interests, desires, needs and rights, is critical to develop throughout the high school experience. This involves making informed decisions and taking responsibility for those decisions.
The York Counseling Department assists each student in the normal developmental tasks and challenges that all adolescents face. York Community High School counselors are committed to the continual and reflective personal growth of our students. The counseling program is designed to assist each student in learning skills and setting goals to reach one's potential in the academic, social/emotional and career/college/post-secondary domains.
The majority of York students stay with the same counselor throughout their high school years and a strong attempt is made to allow counselors to remain with families when siblings attend York. As York counselors, we have the responsibility to provide a comprehensive counseling program that is mindful of the developmental needs of all students. Planning for the future is an important aspect of the counseling program.
