Vision
All Lakeridge High School students will depart empowered with the knowledge and skills needed to become healthy, creative, responsible, respectful and productive global citizens.

 

Mission Statement
The Lakeridge High School counseling department's mission is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program that supports all students.  Counselors teach students skills that support academic success, social/emotional wellness, community/service involvement, and college/career readiness.  The program develops lifelong learners with critical thinking skills, while ensuring student safety, equity and access to education.

 

Beliefs
    We believe each student is unique, and has special abilities,
talents, and interests that must be recognized and nurtured.
    We believe effective school counseling is a collaborative
process that requires support and positive relationships among school
counselors, students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and the
community.
    We believe that a data-driven school counseling program is integral to a school system’s efforts to enhance healthy development and educational attainment for all students.
    We believe that to be an effective school counseling program we must
adhere to the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) ethical
guidelines and standards.


Our Department
Students are assigned to one of three counselors based on the student's last name.  Students will stay with their counselor through all four years of their high school careers.  Lakeridge also has a full-time freshman transition specialist and academic support coordinator who works in conjunction with the other counselors.

We strive to individualize our services in order to help all Lakeridge students grow, learn and succeed.
