    Willard Counseling Vision & Mission


    Willard Intermediate School students will acquire academic, personal, and social skills to reach their full educational potential. Students will develop a mindset focused on college and career exploration. They will succeed and be emotionally and psychologically balanced.


    Willard Intermediate counselors will implement a data-driven and comprehensive school counseling program. We will use a collaborative model that includes parents, teachers, administrators, and community stakeholders to achieve our goals. 


    Willard School Counselors believe:

    • Each student has dignity and worth.
    • Each student is an individual and learns at their own pace.
    • Each student can achieve academic, career, and social/emotional success. 
    • Each student deserves to feel a sense of belonging and a member of a school community that is culturally compassionate and that celebrates their unique qualities.
    • Each student can learn to become self-advocate and resilient in facing life’s challenges. 
    • Each student has access to a school counselor who advocates for their academic, career, and social/emotional needs. 
    • Each student’s needs (ethnic, cultural, racial, socioeconomic, gender differences, and developmental and emotional exceptionalities) are considered in the planning and implementation of the school counseling program. 
    • Each student has a right to a safe and supportive learning environment.
    • The School Counselor will use data to design, implement, evaluate and continuously improve the comprehensive school counseling program.
    • The School Counseling program serves a central role in meeting students’ developmental needs through interventions in our core domains: Academic, Social/Emotional & College/Career.
