Counseling

Welcome to the Century Counseling Department 

Counseling supports the development of the whole child by advocating for academic, social/emotional, career and postsecondary needs and strives to develop life-long learners and productive citizens.

The counseling program in Adams 12 Five Star Schools works collaboratively with parents, community members and educators to empower every child, regardless of individual differences or obstacles, to ensure all students are prepared for meaningful, productive learning through a data-driven comprehensive K-12 school counseling program.

The counselors are available via zoom, google hangouts, telephone, or email. If your student or yourself would like to schedule a time to meet with your counselor, please email the counselor to schedule a time.  Students can discuss any topic for which they would typically sign up to see us (academic, social/emotional, career, family, friends, etc.). Your counselor will email you with a zoom/google hangout link for your scheduled time. Students are also more than welcome to send an email or call us with any questions/concerns if they’d prefer to not talk via video chat.  Please do not hesitate to email or call your counselor or provider. 

**We ask that parents provide a confidential environment for their student to engage in a safe and private conversation with their counselor (much like we offer them at school). This can be done by asking siblings to give them time alone, staying out of earshot of your student’s meeting, providing them headphones to use, etc. Counselors will maintain confidentiality and privacy on their end as well (outside of a situation involving safety)**

School Counselors- Our office hours are a structured time during which students may sign up to speak with us via Zoom/Google Hangouts and when we can return parent/guardian contacts via phone or email. We will still make every effort to return parent/guardian/student communication within one business day.
