Capitol Hill Counseling Department Mission:
The Capitol Hill Comprehensive School Counseling Program challenges all students in an equitable manner to achieve their highest potential and pursue their dreams, through growth in academic, career, and personal/social domains. School counselors collaborate with all stakeholders to help students become successful lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and positive world-changing citizens in a diverse community. Students are provided equitable opportunities to develop strong skills in the five domains of social and emotional learning: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making.
The Capitol Hill Counseling Team offers a comprehensive school counseling program that addresses the three domains of student development: Academic, College/Career, and Personal/Social. We provide many services to Capitol Hill students utilizing a multi-tiered approach through:
- Counseling Clasroom Lessons
- Group Counseling
- Individual Counseling
- Crisis Support
- Academic Support and Planning
- School-wide Implementation of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Initiatives
- 504 Coordination
Lessons, groups and individual student meetings cover a variety of topics that fall under the five CASEL domains:
- Social Awareness
