The mission of the counseling department and student support services at Edgewood High School, based on the National Standards for School Counseling programs, is to ensure that all students are adequately prepared in the academic, career and personal/social domains. The comprehensive model continually examines current data to determine student needs, student services, and adjusts developmental programs in order to provide equity and equality among all student groups. The counselors' goal is to provide a safe environment motivating all students to become lifelong learners and responsible individuals who possess self-knowledge and global awareness.
Students are assigned to counselors by their last name. Please contact your students counselor if you have any questions.
