Counseling

The mission of the Washington Community High School counseling program is to provide a comprehensive curriculum that promotes student achievement and growth in the academic, career, and personal/social domains while encouraging all students to become life-long learners. In collaboration with the Washington staff, parents, and community, the school counselors will help every student become self-aware productive citizens of the local community and the world beyond.
