Mission Statement

The mission of the Saint Mary High School Guidance Department is to provide support and direction throughout the student’s time in high school. The counselors work with students individually as well as in small groups to ensure all academic and personal goals are met. Additionally, counselors consistently act as liaisons to parents, teachers, administrators and staff to make sure that students are reaching their full potential.  It is important to the counseling department, as well as Saint Mary High School, that the students are able to leave here with the confidence, knowledge, moral and spiritual values to be successful in the next step that they take.



The school counseling program at Saint Mary High School is both comprehensive and preventative in nature, and is viewed as an important piece to the overall educational program at Saint Mary High School. Our goal in the guidance department is to ensure that every student has the tools and support to see success academically, socially, personally, and spiritually. While there is an emphasis placed on academics and college/career readiness, the counseling program at Saint Mary High School also offers a variety of other services, including:

  • Academic Advising
  • College and career planning
  • Individual Student Planning (establishing personal goals and developing future plans)
  • Group Counseling (Social skills, study skills, time management, and organization)
  • Crisis Counseling
  • Referrals
  • Peer Facilitation
