Guidance and Counseling Program Components

Our guidance and counseling program is a comprehensive developmental program addressing the whole child to maximize achievement, social and emotional development, and post-secondary college and career readiness.

The program consists of the following 4 program components.


The Guidance Curriculum component includes skill based lessons designed to help all students develop competence in essential life skills. Guidance lessons are based on student need. Some of Briscoe's guidance topics may include; bully awareness and prevention, drug awareness and prevention, appropriate social media use, career exploration, and high school endorsement selection.

Responsive Services

The purpose of Responsive Services is to intervene with or on behalf of a child whose personal circumstances, concerns, or problems are threatening and interfere with healthy career, educational, social, and/or personal development. Responsive Services includes both individual and small group counseling.

Individual Planning

Individual Planning guides students in planning, monitoring, and managing their own career, educational, social, and personal growth. Individual Planning is achieved by assisting students in setting their own goals, course elective choices, and endorsement selections.

System Support

The System Support component describes the management of activities which assures the delivery of a high quality guidance program. This component indirectly services our students. System Support includes; research development, outreach, and professional development.

Small Group Counseling

Small group counseling is an excellent way for students to learn skills, develop self-awareness and confidence, practice new behaviors and better understand how to effectively deal with some issues/concerns that life presents. Small group counseling involves students with shared concerns and goals. Each group varies based on the student's career, social/emotional developmental issues and situational concerns.

Small groups: The following is a list of groups that we offer (groups will be formed based on student need)

  • Academic Readiness
  • Motivation to Achieve
  • Friendships
  • Self-esteem
  • Grief
  • Divorce (family issues)
  • Military Support

If your child is interested in participating in small group counseling, please have your child visit the counseling office for a screening. Sometimes small group counseling isn't the best placement for your child. If that is the case we will support your child through individual counseling for responsive services.
