School Guidance & Counseling Services

The school counseling program is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, and developmental in nature. The ASCA (American School Counselor Association) National Model: A Framework for School Counseling and the State of Alabama's Counseling Plan form the fundamentals of Montgomery's Comprehensive Counseling Plan.

Counselors are a vital adjunct to the  academic, career, and personal/social development of all students at all grade levels. Counselors provide educational support through curriculum lessons, individual and group sessions, responsive services, and system support. Working in collaboration with others, school counselors ensure equity and advocate for students' needs, so that every student is challenged and supported
