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.
