A school counselor, who is in a counseling relationship with a student, has an ethical and legal obligation to keep information contained within that relationship. Confidentiality is the ethical and legal term ascribed to the information communicated within the counseling relationship, and it must be maintained unless keeping that information confidential leads to foreseeable harm.
“Serious and foreseeable harm is different for each minor in the school setting and is determined by students’ developmental and chronological age, the setting, parental rights and the nature of harm”
(ASCA, 2016, A.2.e).
The mission of Norcross High School Counseling Department is to support and assist all students in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and behavior to thrive in their current and post-secondary pursuits.

We encourage students to be intrinsically motivated, self-disciplined, empathic beings, and life-long learners.
Norcross High School Counseling Department vision is that all students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to excel and thrive in their college/career goals. Students will live a life of continuous personal and social growth while engaging and interacting in their communities as world-class, life-long learners who are socially conscious and global thinkers equipped to impact their communities and the world.
