 Program Overview
 The school counseling office center needs to encourage collaboration, problem solving, and
 discussion. The counseling department is primarily concerned with aiding the students’
 development and mastery of skills and competencies in the personal/social, academic, and
 career domains. School counselors in the present and future are agents of change. We are
 active in the classroom, computer labs, one-on-one in our office, and in the community. The
 counseling office in future buildings needs to be versatile, flexible, and technologically
 advanced. Many functions of counseling, college admissions, and financial aid are now online
 activities. Open spaces in the counseling center will promote discussion. A move away from a
 “clinical” looking setting would help encourage more students and families to seek counseling
 services. The counseling office should also have space to accommodate the community and
 events such as motivational speakers.
