Guidance and counseling services are provided for the purpose of assisting students with their educational, vocational, personal-social adjustments, and progress. This service is an integral part of the total school program. Specific areas addressed are crisis intervention, counseling (helping students consider alternatives, make decisions and solve problms), and guidance activities such as test interpretation, scheduling, orientation, college and career information. Examples of situations where a counselor might be involved with students include:

Julia graduated from Schreiner University in Kerrville, TX. While teaching English as a Second Language in Texas, she earned her Masters Degree in Counseling from the University of Houston Clear Lake. She moved to Colorado in 2011 and has been working as a counselor since then.
Christina graduated from Bethel University in Minnesota with her B.A. in Psychology and soon after traded lakes for mountains by making the move to Colorado to pursue her Masters at the University of Northern Colorado. She has been working as a high school counselor in Northern Colorado for the past 3 years and is excited to be a part of the Falcon family. When she is not supporting and walking alongside students, you can find Christina hiking in the mountains, looking up her next travel adventure with her husband, or sipping on a cup of coffee.
