School Counseling

Mission Statement


The mission of the Mt. Lebanon High School Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards for Students, the PA Department of Education Standards for Student Interpersonal Skills and Career and Education Standards, addressing the social/emotional, academic and career development of each and every student.

The Mt. Lebanon High School K-12 counseling department continues to build the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for our children to become healthy, productive adults. With a developmental School Counseling program, school counselors collaborate with faculty, parents, administrators and the community to create an atmosphere where children’s needs are met proactively through prevention and intervention (ASCA, 2005).

Through a comprehensive School Counseling program, all students have the opportunity to recognize their significant role in the school community and learn the skills necessary to maximize their educational potential.
