Student Services Mission Statement

The mission of the school counselors at Mohawk Trail Regional School is to assist students in developing the skills, knowledge, and mindsets to be curious and challenged students, engaged community members, productive workers, and lifelong learners.

The counselors will assist in this process by providing a comprehensive, developmental, and proactive counseling program that addresses the academic, social, emotional, career, and college needs of every student.

The school counselors will provide timely academic, social/emotional, and career and college information to all students through the classroom, small groups, and individually. The goal of this information is for students to understand themselves, their options, and how to make decisions about their future.
