The School Counseling Program is an integral part of the total North Allegheny educational process. The professional school counselor collaborates with other school professionals in helping students learn. A successful program requires the support and participation of all school personnel, parents, guardians, outside agencies, and the community at large.
Individuals possess within themselves the power to control the quality, growth, and satisfaction in their lives. Our counselors fulfill a vital role in helping students meet their personal, social, educational, and career needs. Through a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program, students are assisted in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary to become effective students, responsible citizens, productive workers, and lifelong learners.
