Our Mission

The mission of the Washington-Liberty High School Counseling Department is to advocate for the overall success of all students and nurture their academic, personal, social, and career development. In conjunction with Washington-Liberty High School’s mission, we strive to provide a safe and caring learning environment for every student while being responsive to his or her unique needs. In partnership with other faculty, parents or guardians, and the community, the counseling staff at Washington-Liberty High School seeks to ensure that all students are granted equity and access to resources. We believe in providing a comprehensive guidance program that will equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to become productive and responsible citizens in our world.

Vision Statement

We, the counselors at Washington-Liberty High School, believe in the following values for all students based on the ASCA ethical standards:

  • We believe every student has dignity and worth, can achieve success, and has the ability to reach their full potential, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or background.
  • We believe that every student has the right to achieve success through access to our comprehensive school counseling program services.
  • We believe all students benefit from support in reaching their academic, career, and social/emotional goals.
  • We believe that our school counseling program should incorporate data to support and foster current and future program development and evaluation for all children.
