Counselor's Corner

The mission of the Potter Jr High School Counseling Department is to provide comprehensive and data-driven academic, college and career readiness, and social/emotional services for all students. Through advocating for equity and access for every student, the school counseling program activities and interventions support student success, inspire lifelong leadership, and develop meaningful contributors to a global society.

Potter Jr High's School Counseling Program was recently distinguished as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP). School counseling programs that receive RAMP recognition show how students are different based on the school counseling program and report improvements in overall student achievement and attendance. Here is a video created for the RAMP recognition that highlights our school counseling program: https://vimeo.com/knowmadiclife/pottercounseling.

What is a school counselor? A school counselor is a counselor and an educator who works in elementary, middle, and high schools to support the academic, personal/social, and career development of all students. This is done through creating a comprehensive, results-based school program that includes:

~Classroom and school-wide events, such as Red Ribbon Week activities (living a drug-free life), respect and anti-bullying presentations, and College and Career Day

~Coordination and consultation with students, teachers, families, and other support staff to help students succeed

~Small group and individual counseling, on a short-term basis, to help students develop new skills to use at school and at home

~Connecting families to community resources for additional counseling or other services needed
