School Counseling

 
Welcome to Congaree Elementary
School Counseling!
 

The purpose of the Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide all students with knowledge of personal, social, academic, and career development, to promote their positive mental health, and to assist them in acquiring and using life skills.

The program emphasizes responsible decision making, coping strategies, self understanding, and career development.

Counselors will collaborate with students, parents, and teachers to reach these goals, and will refer students to community resources when additional services are needed.
