Metcalf Counseling

The mission of the School Counseling Program at Morenci Schools is to support the school community by developing and integrating a comprehensive counseling program that assists our students in personal/social, academic and career programs. This will allow our students to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.

Our vision is to create a school culture that supports healthy development of all students. School counseling helps students become better communicators and empowers them with important social and emotional skills critical to their futures.

As an integral part of the counseling program, your student will have access to personalized individual counseling and group counseling. Your student will have the opportunity to actively participate in counseling, determine their outcome goals and learn how to persist in the face of adversity.

School counseling is short-term and solution-focused. Due to the volume of students, Individual Counseling and Group Counseling typically provide students with 6-8 sessions. Additional sessions may be arranged on an as needed basis. School counseling is not designed to replace clinical counseling, but is a useful addition. Referrals for outside services and community resources are available for students and families.

Individual Counseling
Individual school counseling provides each student with a personal opportunity to receive support and guidance to help them become and remain emotionally and academically successful. Crisis intervention is also provided. Individual school counseling does not take the place of clinical counseling.

Group Counseling
Small group counseling provides a supportive environment for students to express their thoughts and feelings about particular topics with their peers. Within the group setting students learn how to become good communicators, cooperative members of a team, effective leaders and concerned members of their school and communities.

Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what.
If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little,
they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big,
because to them all of it has always been big stuff.
~Catherine M. Wallace
