    Counseling Program Information


    As members of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) WE BELIEVE in a school counseling program that is a collaborative effort benefitting students, parents, staff and the overall community.  The LOJHS school counseling program is an integral part of students' daily educational environment. We are partners in their academic/personal/social/college and career readiness preparedness and success.  As counselors we work with students as a team for their three years at LOJHS. We move to the next grade as the students move. This model allows us to implement a true ASCA comprehensive guidance and counseling program for our students, teachers, staff  families and the community.

    Our Mission Statement:

    The purpose of the LOJ counseling department is to provide supplementary services to assist in the academic, social, and emotional development of all students.  The counselors at LOJHS believe that all students are entitled to safety, dignity, respect and equity.

    Our goal is to promote a commitment to life-long learning and to aid students in becoming responsible, culturally aware and productive members of society.  This foundation will be supported and further strengthened by consultation and communication with parents, educators, administrators and community resources.  In collaboration with all other LOJ staff, the counselors are committed to ensuring a learning environment where students are engaged as learners, passionate about what they do and are empowered as people.
