More specifically, our school counseling programs employ strategies to enhance academic skills, provise career awareness, foster interpersonal communication skills, provide career awareness, and impact life skills for all students. The purpose of school counseling is to contribute to the academic success of all students to help them find a purpose in learning.

*Confidentiality and School Counseling*
   Privacy and confidentiality are essential to having an effective school counseling program. Madison Plains recognizes the importance of good communication and good working relationships between students, parents, and the school. Therefore, every effort will be made to protect student and parent privacy rights under certain limited conditions. These conditions generally included safety issues (harm to self and/or others), legal issues, and professional responsibilities (see the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors at www.schoolcounselor.org).
