Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model
The goal of the school counseling program is to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in school and beyond. This is done by putting in place prevention measures to teach students skills in three domains: personal/social, academic, and career. School Counselors are always asking students to answer three essential questions: Who am I? Where am I going? How will I get there? Students are encouraged to use the answers to these questions to guide their decision making. While school counseling is a K-12 continuum, there are some differences between the levels.

High School Counseling
Counseling services at the high school level include work with students’ Academic and Career Plans that will involve a Falcon Talk conference that parents will be invited to in the 10th grade. Heavy emphasis is placed on college and career readiness (the career domain of the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model). Students are also seen individually and in groups on an as needed basis to help them be successful in school.
Role Models Curriculum
“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The junior/senior high school is using the Role Models Curriculum during Falcon Time to foster relationships and promote a positive school community. This curriculum focuses on character traits such as respect, integrity, tolerance, and appreciation to promote leadership among the students. Students will read about leaders, watch movie clips, discuss ethical dilemmas, and review basic skills about 6 different character traits per year.
