Counseling

Counseling and Student Services 2018-2019

As your student navigates through their high school career and the major developmental changes associated with adolescence, they may experience some challenges that require support. The SVHS Counseling Department is here to help. School counselors support students in their academic and social/emotional development. Our goal is to guide all students through these milestones in a healthy and positive way. We are advocates with a shared philosophy of providing equal access and opportunity to all of our students in a safe and rich learning environment at SVHS.
