    Our Vision

    Mt Olive students are high-achieving learners who graduate college and career ready, well prepared to meet the challenges and high expectations of the 21st century. All students participate in rigorous curriculum with high-quality academic and artistic opportunities for self-directed personal growth supported by a comprehensive school counseling program that facilitates strategic partnerships between the school, family and community. As successful, life-long learners and productive citizens, each of our students achieves excellence, making a positive difference in our schools and community.

    The school counselor at Mt Olive believes:

    All students can achieve and meet high standards that will result in college and career success.
    Student developmental needs are best met by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program.
    School counselors must be leaders, advocates and collaborators who create equitable access to rigorous curriculum and opportunities for self-directed personal growth for every student.
    Student achievement is maximized by participation in a comprehensive school counseling program that is planned, managed, delivered and evaluated by licensed professional school counselors.
    Data must be analyzed and translated into goals that guide the development of the comprehensive counseling program promoting student achievement.
    Applying the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors empowers school counselors to make decisions based on the highest moral principles to promote the maximum development of every student.
