“We are no longer ‘Guidance Counselors’ only focused on graduation and course selection for students. We are professional SCHOOL COUNSELORS who focus on the academic success, college and career readiness, and social-emotional development of all students.” ~Mindy Willard, ASCA 2013 The mission of the school counseling program at Auburndale High School is to provide a comprehensive and developmental counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. The school counseling program is an essential part of the total educational program. School counselors are advocates who provide support to maximize all students' potential and academic achievement. In partnership with educators, parents or guardians, and the community, school counselors establish a culture of high expectations where students are empowered to reach their potential while utilizing their unique abilities and interests.
