HCS Counseling Page
Welcome to the Guidance and Counseling Department at Hampton Cove Elementary, where the goals are integrated into the school’s mission which is to help all students develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to achieve their highest potential. The Guidance and Counseling program is closely linked to the ASCS National Model and the state model for all Alabama public schools. The program consists of four components: the Guidance Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, and System Support. Most importantly, the Guidance and Counseling program adopts the framework of ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors for student success.
The Mindset and Behavior standards are grouped into three domains:
- Academic Domain: The standards in this area provides the guide for strategies and activities that maximize each student’s ability to learn.
- Career Domain: Provide the strategies for the counseling program to help students understand the connection between school success and career success across the lifespan.
- Social/Emotional Domain: The strategies and activities help students to manage, and apply interpersonal skills.
