SHS Counseling


The community of Santiago High School cultivates compassionate, innovative, and responsible students by providing opportunities for students to meet the challenges of the 21st century to become productive, contributing members of society.


This mission of Santiago High School’s Counseling Department is to provide all students with a strong foundation in the academic, social-emotional, and career domains of development.

Counselors provide social-emotional supports that address the needs of students while encouraging them to become lifelong learners and productive members of society through a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) approach. Counselors use data to create college and career readiness programs that prepare students to compete in the global market. Counselors create opportunities for academic rigor whether students will be entering a university, community college, vocational school, military, or the workforce.

We are operating in uncharted territory right now that nobody could have possible imagined or prepared for.

You might feel many things at once, like being upset that an event was cancelled, but happy that you can wear pajamas all day. Your feelings are normal; the situation is not. Don't forget to breathe.
