About Our Counseling Program

The focus of the guidance and counseling program at Newport High School is on the developmental needs of all students. Counselors demonstrate respect for the dignity and worth of each individual. Counselors coordinate the school guidance program and involve all staff members in designing and implementing plans to meet three major goals.

  1. Educational Development
  2. Personal/Social Development
  3. Career Development

The school counselors serve the needs of students in maximizing their learning experiences while providing specifically for their future needs. The counselor helps each student to think through his/her problems or concerns and plan accordingly. Each student will be assigned to a counselor who will help with educational, personal and occupational choices and decisions.

Our goal is to provide graduates with the competencies necessary to make self-directed, realistic and responsible decisions, and foster individuals who will be contributors in a changing society.
