Welcome to the Harrison Central School District Secondary Counseling Department.
We are excited to assist in the educational, social, emotional, college, and career development of your child throughout his or her secondary school years (6-12).
We believe that each student is an important, valued, developing, capable, and unique individual who will learn from experience and grow personally and educationally throughout adolescence. We are committed to the district's mission of equity, access, rigor, and adaptability for all. All students' differences, strengths and special needs are considered in planning and implementing our school counseling program.
Our program reflects an integrated approach to helping students' individual and developmental needs. We believe helping students to understand themselves will assist them in making sound decisions and plans today and in their future.
Our specific services are delivered through individual and group counseling. We ensure students have opportunities to engage in academic advisement and multi-year planning, college and career advisement and social/personal development. We believe and make every effort to engage parents actively in the school experience.
We encourage you to partner with us so that each student is best served. Please do not hesitate to contact us for support and guidance or to call on us to act as a liaison between home and school.
In our work as school counselors we strive to better our program and welcome feedback from our students, parents, and colleagues. We are aligned with the ethical guidelines and standards of the American School Counselor Association (www.schoolcounselor.org).
