Welcome to the Counseling Department
The Creekland Middle School Counseling Department provides a comprehensive school counseling program in order to impact student achievement. Our program assists students in their academic, social, emotional, and career developments. The Creekland Middle School counselors work closely together to create a warm, nurturing, and safe environment where all students feel important and can learn.
Mission & Vision
MissionThe mission of Creekland Middle School's Counseling Department is to help all students reach their full potential by promoting academic, career, personal, and social success through a safe, nurturing, and risk-free environment. Through Creekland’s Comprehensive School Counseling program, we will build bridges to student achievement to foster life-long learners who will become responsible members of society.
VisionCreekland Middle School’s data-driven comprehensive developmental school counseling program removes barriers that impede learning, thereby creating a world-class school with students who excel in all areas. Students recognize their potential as leaders in the school setting as well as the local community. They graduate college and career ready and are able to meet the challenges of a global workforce as self-sufficient, socially competent, critical-thinking and problem-solving individuals who make a positive difference in their community.
Students can meet with the counselor one-on-one to discuss any idividual concerns. Individual counseling sessions are short-term. Meeting with the school counselor is not a replacement for mental health counseling or psychotherapy.
Small groups typically include 6 to 8 students and last for 6-8 weeks. This year, our small groups topics will be self-esteem, social skills, high achiever's anxiety, and bullying. If you would like to see another topic, please let your school counselor know!
We aim to meet with classes throughout the year in order to provide developmentally appropriate lessons to all students. This year, we will be visiting every classroom to teach Teen Lures and GCIS, as well as a few others. All lessons will align with Georgia's Competencies for the appropriate grade level, as well as the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA's) Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success.
