Welcome to the School Counseling Department
at Ridgefield Memorial High School.
The school counseling program strives to address the needs of all students by helping them to acquire competencies in knowledge, of self and others, career planning, exploration, and educational/vocational development.
School counseling is an important and integral part of the overall educational program. A continuous, sequential, educational process that focuses on the social, emotional, and educational well-being of all students. Seeking the development of human potential at all levels means understanding individual differences, recognizing many kinds of talent and accepting the myriad ways in which individual capabilities may be realized. It requires a genuine and equal concern for all students, for their personal exploration of talents, and for their personal striving toward meaningful goals.
