Programs and Resources
The Assumption High School Guidance Department’s philosophy reflects and expands upon the overall mission of Assumption High School which is to educate the whole student: mind, body, and spirit. We manifest the mission of Assumption High School through programs to help our students in the areas of personal counseling and college/career counseling. In addition, we are committed to staying current in our field by participating in professional organizations on the local and national levels and by keeping a current connection with our mental health professionals and referral resources. We believe that providing assistance to students experiencing personal or family problems, problems with alcohol or drug use, or other mental health concerns has a positive effect on their academic performance, classroom behavior, and attendance. While adhering to the American School Counselor Association’s stated guidelines for confidentiality, we believe that collaboration with parents, faculty, staff, and outside agencies promotes a sense of overall community well-being.
