CHS Counseling

Program and Boys/Girls State Presentation


  • The purpose of the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program (MCGCP) is to provide students in kindergarten through grade 12 with successful educational experiences.
  • School districts will have comprehensive guidance and counseling programs in which school counselors will be able to devote full time to guidance and counseling.
  • 4 Components: Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, System Support

System Support

Developing and maintaining the Comprehensive Guidance Program in our building and district-wide
Collaboration with teachers, administrators, parents, etc.
Professional Development (conferences, workshops, trainings, etc)
Presentations to community groups
Community outreach (sponsorships for students attending selective programs, donations for students in need)

Additional CHS Responsibilities

Boys and Girls State

  • Summer leadership and citizenship program for high school juniors
  • · These students are nominated by the teachers here at the high school.
  • · The cost for a sponsorship is $300 per student. We are sending 5 this year (we received extra spots) to Girls State, and 3 to Boys State.

As participants in this program, students will learn public speaking, create and enforce laws, and actively participate in all phases of creating and running a working government. They will meet other students from across the state. Also, they will receive scholarship/admission preference for attending this event. All in all, it’s pretty cool! :)
