Mission Statement

The comprehensive guidance and counseling program at Winston Churchill High School supports student learning while making unique contributions to academic, career, and personal/social development and community involvement, nurturing growth and progress in these domains.

The Churchill school counselors subscribe to the following basic tenets of the counseling process:

  • Each person has the right to respect and dignity as a human being and to counseling services without prejudice as to person, character, belief, or practice regardless of age, color, disability, ethnic group, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or socioeconomic status.
  • Each person has the right to self-direction and self-development.
  • Each person has the right of choice and the responsibility for goals reached.
  • Each person has the right to privacy and thereby the right to expect the counselor/counselee relationship to comply with all laws, policies, and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality.

The end goal of the counseling program is that each student will leave high school with the academic, career, personal and social involvement skills to be able to make realistic and responsible decisions and contributions to themselves, others and their communities.
