SCS Counseling Program

The school counseling program at Stockbridge Central School is in compliance with the American School Counselors Association (ASCA) national model for effective school counseling programming.  The foundation of our program is student centered, strength based and is made available to, and supportive of, all students at SCS.   This comprehensive approach addresses the academic, social and emotional skills necessary for each student to realize his or her own potential for lifelong learning and growing.  

Our goal is to help students with establishing personal goals, decision making skills, communication skills, cooperative skills, character & values, emotional awareness and regulation, self knowledge and worth, social & interpersonal skills, problem solving, conflict resolution and more.
