Hamilton School Counseling Mission Statement:
Hamilton’s School Counseling Department provides a comprehensive, developmental counseling program which endeavors to support and advocate for each scholar in reaching his/her personal level of excellence in academics, college/career pursuits, and personal/social well-being.
The following services are provided to all students through individual, small group, and classroom lessons:
- Study Skills
- School of Choice support
- Individual Academic Planning
- 5th to 6th transition
- 8th to 9th transition
- Effective Learning Skills
- Individualized Career and Academic Plans (ICAP) lessons with all students
- College Visits
- College and Career planning & goal setting
- One on one counseling
- Small groups (specialized topics)
- Referrals to community services
Each quarter the school counselors visit classrooms to talk with students about their Individual Career & Action Plan (ICAP). ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic, and postsecondary opportunities. Students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and or college ready.
Lessons have been created specifically for each grade level and differ in their content. If you are interested in learning more about a presentation we encourage you to connect with us and we will be happy to answer any questions.
