Counseling Department

The mission of the Shakopee School Counseling Program is to provide all students with a comprehensive school counseling program that encourages the highest level of student achievement through their growth in academic, college/career and personal/social domains.  As school counselors, we’re here to help your child be successful in school, and we do so by supporting your child’s academic, social/ emotional and college/career development. To meet these needs we teach lessons in your child’s classes, facilitate small groups, and meet individually to provide brief, solution-focused counseling and interventions.
