Mission Statement

It is the goal of our counseling department at CVM to have a comprehensive approach to help all students succeed in their academic personal and social lives. This assistance may take many forms and offers a confidential environment where students may explore solutions to their problems. We are available to provide personal support, academic guidance and career planning in order for students to achieve success in school and be prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society.

We also work with many community programs and services to support our students’ achievement and personal growth. When students have significant needs requiring ongoing or extended support, we may refer them to professionals outside the school. In these instances, we stay involved in our student’s progress.

In order for students to achieve their maximum potential and have a successful educational experience, communication among parents, teachers, and school personnel is essential. This communication of student progress is accomplished in a variety of ways: six-week progress report grades and semester grades; teacher, administrator, and/or counselor meetings or phone calls home; Team Conferences, Student Assistant Team (SAT) meetings, Student Study Teams (SST), and Individual Educational Plan (IEP) meetings; or by requesting weekly progress reports.
