    About HVES Counseling Program

    Hardin Valley Elementary School offers a wide variety of counseling services that follow the American School Counseling Association's national model. Our framework consists of the following four components: define, manage, deliver, and assess.


    Your HVES School Counselors follow both student and professional standards that support the development and implementation of our program.


    We focus our helping role through both a vision and mission statement. These beliefs were created by a team of HVES Elementary School Counselors as follows:

    Vision: The vision of Hardin Valley Elementary School’s Counseling Program is for all students to become responsible citizens and lifelong learners through the development of academic knowledge, career readiness, and social/emotional growth.

    Mission: The mission of Hardin Valley Elementary School’s Counseling Program is to maximize every student’s social/emotional, educational and career development potential in order to become responsible citizens and lifelong learners.


    Your HVES School Counselors will deliver both direct and indirect services through our school counseling curriculum instruction, consultation, collaboration, and counseling services.


    With the support of our Advisory Council, we strive to assess both our effectiveness and the contributions we make to all our students' development throughout their elementary school years.
