    The Mission & Vision 
     
    Through collaboration with the home and community, the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Counseling and Campus Support Department provides a comprehensive developmental counseling program to support students in achieving their full potential to live as healthy, responsible, and resilient citizens.

    The Counseling Team 

    School Counselors are certified/licensed educators with a Master’s degree in school counseling.

    Intervention Counselors in the middle and high schools are either School Counselors, Licensed Professional Counselors,  or Licensed Master Social Workers with clinical experience related to mental health issues.

    College and Career Readiness Specialists are certified School Counselors or Master level educators with AP or CTE High School level course experience.

    The Collaborative Process

    Counselors, Intervention Counselors, the Social Worker, and CCRSs work together to support and maximize the academic and social/emotional well-being of all EMS students through a balanced and comprehensive guidance program.  Areas addressed throughout the year include: 

    • Academic concerns and requirements
    • Personal Education Plans
    • College and Career awareness
    • Communication skills
    • Decision-making, goal-setting, planning, and problem-solving (conflict resolution)
    • Interpersonal relationships and social skills
    • Motivation to achieve, self-empowerment through self-understanding
    • Respect for others and appreciation of cultural differences
    • Responsible behavior
    • Safety issues
    • Parent Information Meetings

    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.
