Our school counselors are vital members of the educational team.

They support all scholars in the areas of academic achievement, personal social development, and college and career readiness. Our program ensures equitable access to opportunities and curriculum for all scholars to participate fully in the educational process. Counselors focus their skills on providing their services to scholars and learning coaches in the following ways:

  1. Individual Scholar Planning that consists of support to help scholars establish personal goals and develop future plans through academic planning and appropriate course selection.
  2. Responsive Services that meets the immediate needs and concerns of our scholars.
  3. Counseling Curriculum that provides scholars the knowledge and skills appropriate for their developmental level and addresses the needs of the school community.
  4. College & Career Readiness that provides post-secondary planning, exploration, college admission and financial aid support.

We believe in Opportunity for Every Scholar.

  • We believe that scholars have a right to a credentialed school counselor who will participate in a comprehensive school counseling program designed to address academic, social/emotional and college/career needs.
  • We believe that learning requires the active participation, mutual respect, and individual accountability of scholars, learning coaches, faculty, administration and community stakeholders.
  • We believe that to be an effective school counseling program we must adhere to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) ethical guidelines and standards.


The mission of the Compass Charter Schools Counseling Program is to provide access to a  comprehensive, developmental, and proactive school counseling program. All scholars will be inspired to reach their fullest potential, addressing the unique needs of all scholars through a focus on self-advocacy, academic, social/emotional, and career development. The school counseling department creates safe, equitable learning environments and nurtures scholars’ personal growth, one scholar at a time.


The vision of the Compass Charter Schools counseling program is for all scholars to graduate prepared for college and career opportunities in the 21st century. CCS scholars are life-long learners and future leaders inspired by curiosity, collaboration, and community. As innovative, creative, self-directed learners, CCS scholars take responsibility for their future success and well-being.
