    Mission Statement
     
    Through collaboration with the home and community, the Eagle Mountain-Saginaw Counseling and Campus Support Department provides a comprehensive developmental counseling program to support students in achieving their full potential to live as healthy, responsible and resilient citizens.
     
    Vision 

    Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD Professional School Counselors are committed to ensuring all students are globally competitive citizens for the 21st century, optimizing performance by addressing each student's academic, social/emotional, and career needs.

    Counselors are Professionals

    School counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling. Intervention Counselors in the middle and high schools are Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Master Social Workers with clinical experience related to mental health issues. Counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement; personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Professional school counselors serve a vital role in maximizing student success. 

    Counselors Help Students Cope

    Counselors know how to listen and help. Counselors can give support on solving problems and making good decisions. They are trained to provide guidance to students and parents related to many subjects including:

    • Academic concerns and requirements
    • Career awareness
    • Communication skills
    • Decision-making, goal-setting, planning, and problem-solving (conflict resolution)
    • Interpersonal relationships and social skills
    • Motivation to achieve
    • Respect for others and appreciation of cultural differences
    • Responsible behavior
    • Safety issues
    • Self-empowerment and resiliency
    • Self-understanding and self-confidence

    While school counselors can help students through a crisis and provide support on an as-needed basis, they do not provide long-term therapy. School counselors have been trained to identify possible mental health issues and refer parents and students to outside resources when needed.
