Academic Counseling The purpose of academic counseling is to provide all students with the tools for success in the academic world. Each and every Eaglecrest student is supported to become proficient in English, social studies, mathematics, science, world languages, the practical/fine arts, and wellness and fitness. The main goal of academic counseling is to support students in acquiring the skills necessary to be lifelong learners. College & Career CounselingThe purpose of college & career planning and counseling is to prepare students for their life beyond high school. This includes helping students discover the value of an education, the variety and availability of colleges and careers, and how to develop a plan of action. Personal/Social Counseling
The purpose of personal/social counseling is for students to acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and interpersonal skills needed to understand and respect themselves and others in a diverse world. Support Groups Support groups are offered at Eaglecrest High School on an on-going basis. These groups, facilitated by guidance counselors and school psychologists, provide general support to students to help alleviate stressors that may impact school success. See your counselor for more information. Mental Health TeamThe Eaglecrest High School Mental Health Team consists two school psychologists and a school social worker who provide crisis intervention and support. The team is also available for consultation on many issues which may affect learning and school success. We consult regularly with general and special education teachers regarding students' access to learning. Additional Resources Because professional school counselors work with many students with a wide variety of academic and personal/social needs, Eaglecrest High School counselors are available for brief support. Students who require a more intensive therapeutic intervention may need to access resources outside of the school environment. The resources provided within the Eaglecrest Counseling page are available in the community and are not an endorsement for any specific organization, facility, or service. It is the responsibility of the individual family to further research these assistance programs.
