- Learning is a desire that is universal, relentless, vital and life-long
- School is a safe environment that promotes positive self-worth, equal learning opportunities and is the foundation to society.
- School Counselors should be certified professionals, who advocate for student achievement, collaborate with all stakeholders to remove barriers impeding learning.
- School Counseling Programs should be driven by data and strategically designed in response to the constantly changing personal/social, academic and career need of all students.
- Data is the driving force behind successful programs used for growth and developmental planning and creating a successful program.
- All students no matter socioeconomic status, race, family background or culture should have the right and access to an equal education opportunity.
