Counseling Center

 

 

 

Our Mission:

The Counseling Program is designed to assist students with their academic, social and emotional development. This function can best be effected by the combined efforts of the administration, faculty, pupil personnel, parents and the students themselves. The counseling role encompasses the total school population and program. This role becomes a specific one since counselors are collating and interpreting information about individual students for the student, parents, faculty and the administration. The highest obligation is to recognize the worth and dignity of each student and to provide an education which will lead to his/her full development. Counselors have the responsibility to open horizons and point out opportunities for students. In order to help individual students recognize their own worth and thus be in a better position to make decisions and to assume responsibility for their lives, the Counseling Center places a premium on knowing individual students.

  • Guidance Plan:
  • The Babylon Jr/Sr Guidance Plan is designed to be a resource for members of the Babylon Central School District Counseling Department and the Babylon Central School District educational community. The plan supports the overall mission of the School District by promoting student achievement, college and career planning, and personal and social development for every student. Babylon school counselors, using their leadership, advocacy, teaming and collaboration, and data driven decision making skills, will ensure that every student will have access to a quality and equitable education. This plan is aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards, the New York State School Counselor Association’s Model Comprehensive K-12 School Counseling Program, the American School Counselor association National Standards for Students and enhanced with practical ideas for activities and assessments.

    It is recognized that the development of any program is a process of continuous improvement. This plan assumes that the use of data as a powerful planning tool makes school counseling programs more effective. A properly implemented program focuses school resources on student achievement and increases collaboration between educational professionals within schools.

    The Counseling Plan is currently being updated and will be available soon.
