Mission Statement 

The mission of the West Chicago Community High School Counseling department is to teach, nurture, and inspire all students with a comprehensive and proactive school counseling curriculum.  This curriculum fosters a growth mindset, builds emotional intelligence, and encourages world awareness and involvement.  Further, it insists that every student be ethically responsible and have a realistic and viable post-secondary plan upon graduation.  School counselors advocate for equity, access, and student success by identifying and addressing barriers, encouraging self-advocacy, accountability, and promoting the development of citizenship that embraces integrity and character.

The WEGO counseling team is available to support students and families through the post-high school planning process. This website is a compilation of resources to help students create a post-secondary plan. Counselors will also meet with students in person to provide resources that will support students' exploration and research.
