The EGHS School Counseling Program is designed to address the developmental needs of all students. It is in alignment with The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Standards for School Counseling Programs. The EGHS Counseling Program is founded on the belief that each student possesses intrinsic worth and specific rights, and is a unique and dynamic personality capable of personal growth and self-direction. The program is preventative, proactive, developmental, and remedial in nature. Under ASCA’s guidelines, the following three areas are identified as essential components to a comprehensive developmental guidance program: Academic Development, Career Development, and Personal/Social Development.
