The mission of the Eastern Lancaster County School District Counseling Program is to function as an integral part of the district’s comprehensive program by assisting all students, regardless of individual differences, in acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to grow into resilient, productive lifelong learners. The counseling department is committed to providing equal access to comprehensive counseling services to all students.
The school counseling program is built on the assumption that certain academic, career, and social/emotional objectives are attainable when school counseling for all students is provided. This implementation acknowledges that school counseling is no longer a service to be offered by one person. It is a program coordinated with students, parents, educators, business/community and post-secondary partners which incorporates a comprehensive curriculum.
