COUNSELING DEPARTMENT MISSION STATEMENT
SPECIAL NOTE-- With our campus being closed for the remainder of the spring semester and beginning of the fall semester due to COVID-19 concerns, you can still reach your counselor through email. We will be checking these frequently. As for transcripts, seniors can request final copies of their transcripts to be sent to the school of their choice through our online transcript request. Seniors MUST request a final transcript to be sent even if one was sent earlier in the year for admission purposes. The final transcript only needs to be sent to the definite school of choice that they will be attending in the fall.
THE MISSION OF THE JAMES CLEMENS COUNSELING DEPARTMENT IS TO PROVIDE A COMPREHENSIVE, DEVELOPMENTAL COUNSELING PROGRAM ADDRESSING THE ACADEMIC, CAREER, PERSONAL AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF ALL STUDENTS.
