The Counselors at Norcross High School work with students one-on-one, through classroom guidance, and in small groups. Students seek services for a host of issues, both psychosocial and educational in nature. A counselor's caseload is determined by the student's last name and grade level.
During digital learning, Gwinnett County School Counselors will continue supporting students' academic success, career development, and social-emotional growth, utilizing Zoom and Google Meet for individual meetings, conferences, presentations, groups, and classroom lessons/activities.

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).
