RCS High School Counseling Center

Mission Statement:

To support, educate and advocate for all students through social/emotional, academic, and career counseling.

Meet the Counseling Center Staff:

At the heart of our role is student advocacy. We are fortunate to work with students from their freshman year through their senior year. Along the way we develop relationships with students and families, and educate and guide students through important decision-making years.  Consider us your child’s point person, their go-to, a liaison. We consult and connect and inform, all the while holding your child’s best interest at heart. Helping students and their families navigate the high school years and plan for the future is both our specialty and our passion.
