Philosophy of the Counseling Department:

The Developmental School Counseling Program at Connetquot High School is a comprehensive plan of academic, career, and personal development.  It is an integral part of the total school program and supports the goals established for all students.

The Connetquot High School Counseling Department emphasizes the relationship between the student and counselor.  It is the key to a successful program.  Through a series of sequential and developmental activities, the counselor ensures that he/she is meaningfully involved with each student during each year of the secondary school experience.  In this way the student is in the best position to learn, plan and make positive decisions with the ongoing support and assistance of a counselor that knows him/her well.

Integral to the success of a comprehensive, developmental program is a team approach that requires the cooperation and involvement of parents, staff members, and community organizations.  Parents are encouraged to call their student's guidance counselor with any questions or concerns.  Meetings with the guidance counselors are available upon request.
