Mission Statement
 

Through collaboration with the home and community, the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Counseling and Intervention Staff provides a comprehensive developmental counseling program to support students in achieving their full potential to live as healthy, responsible, and resilient citizens. 

 
Vision 

Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Professional School Counselors are committed to ensuring all students are globally competitive citizens for the 21st century, optimizing performance by addressing each student's academic, social/emotional, and career needs. 

Counselors are Professionals

School counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling. Intervention Counselors in the middle and high schools are Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Master Social Workers with clinical experience related to mental health issues. Counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement; personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Professional school counselors serve a vital role in maximizing student success.

 
Counselors Help Students Cope

Counselors know how to listen and help. Counselors can give support on solving problems and making good decisions. They are trained to provide guidance to students and parents related to many subjects including:

  • Academic concerns and requirements
  • Career awareness
  • Communication skills
  • Decision-making, goal-setting, planning and problem solving (conflict resolution)
  • Interpersonal relationships and social skills
  • Motivation to achieve
  • Respect for others and appreciation of cultural differences
  • Responsible behavior
  • Safety issues
  • Self-empowerment and resiliency
  • Self-understanding and self-confidence

While school counselors can help students through a crisis and provide support on an as-needed basis, they do not provide long-term therapy. School counselors have been trained to identify possible mental health issues and refer parents and students to outside resources when needed.
