Counselor's Corner

The Vision of the ECHS Counseling Department is for all of our students to earn college credit as we create and maintain a safe, supportive, and informative environment where students are expected to use their voices to advocate for their needs and own their learning. We represent students' concerns to the administration team and the community college. Academic progress, mental health concerns, college aspirations, and career identity are used to make ethical and equitable decisions for all students.
