Counseling Program Goals

Liberty High School’s Guidance Department believes that every student has the right to the most challenging  education available. The counselor’s role in the educational process is to offer academic and career guidance, and personal and social counseling. Our primary role is to challenge the potential of every student and guide them toward appropriate educational and career choices, and to act as a liaison among school, student, parent, and community.

 

Students will be provided with services to help them make decisions regarding their personal, social, educational and career development. Student growth is evidenced by Liberty High School’s Expected Schoolwide Learning Results.

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own”

– Benjamin Disraeli
