L&N STEM Academy School Counseling

  • Mission:
    The mission of the School Counseling department at the L&N STEM Academy is to ensure that all students realize and integrate their academic, career and personal/social potential in order to develop and achieve an individualized vision of success. School Counselors will work with all students in a variety of ways to ensure students are being supported to achieve their own unique future goals based upon their interests and skills. Through prevention, intervention, and encouraging self-advocacy, we strive to prepare each student with the skills they will require to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
     
     
    Professional school counselors are certified/licensed professionals with a master's degree or higher in school counseling and are uniquely qualified to address the developmental needs of all students. Professional school counselors deliver a comprehensive school counseling program encouraging all students' academic, career and personal/social development and help all students in maximizing student achievement.
