    Hillcrest High School Counseling  Program Mission Statement 

    The mission of the Hillcrest High School Counseling program is to provide all students with equal access to a school counseling program that promotes academic, college/career, and social/emotional support.  All students are empowered to become productive citizens of a global society, in the home, workforce and community through programs and services that meet the individual and collective needs of students.  The school counseling program teaches students to be caring and respectful citizens by teaching about the many different cultures in their community and world at large.  As a leader, the school counselor advocates for social justice for all and equity in access to resources that aid student growth and development one student at a time.  This is done through collaborative efforts with school administrators, parents, students, teachers, and other community members and stakeholders.  The school counselor promotes the counseling program and educates all stakeholders on the important role of the school counselor in student development.
