The vision of the Farragut High School Counseling Program is to facilitate student growth that will enable every student to graduate with the academic knowledge, career direction, and social/emotional balance to successfully transition to life after high school as a contributing member of society.
To provide a comprehensive counseling program that attends to the social, emotional, academic, and career preparation/college planning needs for all students. Each counselor seeks to have a positive impact on the lives of our students by upholding integrity and excellence. In partnership with other educators, parents/guardians, and the community, Farragut High School counselors facilitate the support system to ensure all students have access to and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
