Welcome to the Counseling Office!
Our Mission:

Our mission is to empower all students to reach their full potential while supporting their growth in academics, social and emotional development, and career preparation.  We will strive to prepare students to be life-long learners as well as responsible citizens.  We will advocate on behalf of students as well as strive to form collaborative partnerships with parents, school staff members, and the community to facilitate student success and growth.  We recognize that student success and growth are best nourished in a safe environment and we will work to provide a school environment that supports individual differences as well as celebrates diversity.

Red Lion Area Senior High School has five full time school counselors on its staff. The counselors play many roles; consultants to teachers and parents, members of the pupil personnel staff team, interpreters for records and tests, informational resources, helpers to the struggling students, confidants, and advocates.

The school counselors serve students in a variety of ways. Counselors help students with education, vocational, and personal problems; guide students in the course selection process; assist students in vocational and college placement; coordinate and maintain a complete record of student progress throughout students' school years. Five full-time counselors and two secretaries are available to serve students.

Students are assigned to counselors alphabetically by their last name. Students need only to report to assigned counselors for routine activities (scheduling, testing, etc.). For any other situation, students may talk with any counselor with whom they feel comfortable.
