South High School Counseling Program Mission Statement

To support South High School’s mission by providing comprehensive, developmental counseling services, with a particular emphasis on eliminating the racial achievement gap and support all students in creating a positive, productive life for themselves beyond high school.

South High School Counseling Program Vision Statement

We want to educate lifelong learners through critical thinking, providing challenging curriculum and helping students discover their passion, embrace different cultures and have a curiosity about the world around them.  We want to ensure that every student is college and career ready.

We'll help you with:

  • Academic assistance.
  • Tracking progress toward graduation.
  • Opportunities to make up credits.
  • Letters of recommendation and planning life after high school.
  • Ways to get involved and connected to the South High community.
  • Problem-solving and decision-making strategies.
  • Referrals for support, including mental and chemical health services.
  • Challenging life circumstances.

To see us, first make an appointment with a counseling clerk:

  • Before or after school, or during passing time.
  • During the school day, you'll need a pass from your teacher.
  • If the matter is urgent, inform the clerk. We'll do our best to see you immediately.

We also organize academic planning events, listed here and on the main school calendar.
