Our philosophy as counselors in the Epping school community is to provide a comprehensive guidance program that supports and educates students to better enable them to be lifelong learners and productive citizens. Our goal is to assist students in all aspects of their day; academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally to acquire the skills and attitudes necessary to meet their goals. Meeting these goals empowers students to reach their highest career aspirations and succeed as life-long learners.
- All students will develop a clear sense of themselves as learners.
- All students will develop a positive self-identity and maintain affirming interpersonal relationships.
- All students will leave the Epping school community with the tools necessary to be productive members of society.
