School Counseling

  • Welcome to the School Counseling Department!  We are excited to welcome THREE new counselors to our team and look forward to meeting all the new and returning Aragon students.  Read more about all of us here.

    The School Counseling Team works with the school community to provide guidance, expertise and support under the National Model for School Counseling in the areas of Academic, Career and Social/Emotional development. Through classroom presentations, individual meetings, parent presentations, staff development and collaboration the counselors work with the school community in a variety of ways.

    The counseling team provides support to students so they can successfully reach their academic and personal goals. From questions about alternative learning programs to figuring out which classes are best for students, we help advise our students in selecting an academic pathway that accommodates their needs as Aragon students.
