Counseling

Stafford County Public Schools has a comprehensive counseling program to support students in achieving their academic, career, and personal goals. We work with students and their families to develop a meaningful post-secondary plan that aligns with the student’s academic and career goals. This begins in elementary school with exploration, followed by development of an academic and career plan in seventh grade, and continues through high school.

School counselors help students manage emotions and learn and apply interpersonal skills. They provide short term counseling to individuals and groups, and classroom lessons to support emotional development of students.
