The mission of the Madison Academic High School Counseling Department is to take an essential role in providing and maintaining a safe, equitable, and accessible educational environment. The School Counseling Department provides a data-driven, comprehensive counseling program that focuses on the academic, social/emotional, and post-secondary planning needs of all students. Students reach individual success through group and individual counseling, academic support, crisis prevention and intervention, post-secondary planning, and student/family advocacy ensuring equity for all. The school counselors at Madison High School collaborate with teachers, staff, administrators, families, and community partnerships so that all students are prepared to be productive and responsible citizens who have a plan to reach their post-secondary goals with confidence.
The vision of Madison Academic High School’s Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive approach to ensure all students graduate through academic, college/career, and social/emotional support that meets the needs of our diverse learning community. In collaboration with our community and in partnership with our families, we will ensure that each stakeholder has a voice in the outcome of the student learner. We will foster our students to become critical thinkers, capable learners, and productive citizens, while preparing them for the rigor of post-secondary education and 21st Century careers. We are committed to developing the intellectual, social, cultural and occupational characteristics of our students in order to develop resilient and effective valued members of a global community.
