The mission of the Loyalsock Township School District school counseling department is to provide a comprehensive and developmental school counseling program that addresses academic, career and personal/social needs of each student. In partnership with our schools, families and community, the school counselors support and inspire students to reach their fullest potential.
“The school counselor is an integral system support for the school-family-community relationship that meet the personal/social, academic, and career needs of a large number of students through collaboration, coordination, and consultation with school and community stakeholders.”

School counselors help students create an academic plan for their education to prepare for successful careers after graduation and help students develop the necessary skills, such as organizational, time management, and study skills.
School Counselors assist students in career awareness, exploration and planning in order to prepare them for success in post-secondary education and a rapidly changing workplace.
School Counselors offer conflict resolution strategies and individual counseling opportunities as the need arises.
Consultation and Collaboration
School counselors address the academic and developmental needs of all students, not just those in need, by collaborating with students, parents, school staff and the community.
