Roles and Responsibilities

Mission Statement: The Faribault High School Counseling Department will provide a developmental, equitable program to meet the academic, career, social/emotional needs of our diverse population. In collaboration with stakeholders, we will foster a comprehensive program that will facilitate a climate for student achievement and success to prepare students for their post high school options.

School counselors are certified/licensed educators with the minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling and are uniquely qualified to address the developmental needs of all students through a school counseling program addressing the academic, career and social/emotional development of all students. School counselors work with students and all stakeholders directly and indirectly within these domains. Collaboration, leadership, advocacy, and systemic change are integral components of a comprehensive school counseling program aligned with the American School Counseling Association.
