Welcome to the Centennial High School
Centennial High School counselors are dedicated to providing all students with a comprehensive, developmental counseling program that encourages academic success, social emotional growth and career awareness and exploration.
Beliefs and philosophy:
The Centennial High School Counseling Department operates under the beliefs that:
Our school counseling program is comprehensive and aligned with the National Standards for School Counseling as outlined by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) model. We make students are our highest priority: they are all treated equally, repsectfully and with dignity, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation or educational needs. All students receive individual student planning that addresses their goals in academic, career and personal social development and are informed, empowered and encouraged to pursue their post-secondary options. We acknowledge the potential and importance of every student and accept the repsosibility to challenge, direct and guide students in their pursuit of knowledge.The values of honesty, respect and responsibility are fundamental to guiding and preparing students for a lifetime of learning. School Counselors address the prevention, intervention and developmental needs of all students through collaboration with families, teachers, student support staff and the educational community. Data drives the development of our program and the individual needs of our students are considered when evaluating counseling services.
The counseling deptartment is open Monday - Friday - 7am -330pm.The receptionist is on staff from 7am-330pm.
*Note - due to the nature of our jobs, counselor work schedules/availability vary from week to week, sometimes day to day. There are several times during the year where we may be unavailable due to meetings, conferences, presentations or crises etc. We try very hard to service and meet the needs of our parents, students and staff and realize that your questions and concerns are important. If a particular counselor is not available and you have arrived without an appointment we ask for your patience, you may have to wait, see another counselor or make an appointment with your counselor to return at a different date/time if we happen to be busy upon your arrival.
