Holly Springs Elementary School Counseling Program Mission Statement

Kristy Scott

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


Holly Springs Elementary provides a comprehensive and developmental counseling program for students in all grade levels. This program is designed to meet student needs by promoting and supporting personal, social, emotional and academic growth.

Aspects of the counseling program include classroom guidance, small group counseling, individual counseling, and consultation with school staff and parents.

  • Classroom Guidance: Classroom guidance lessons are developmental in design and address topics such as test-taking skills, bullying, manners, responsibility, etc.
  • Small Group Counseling: Small group counseling provides a small group learning environment with students who may share a common concern, such as divorce, grief and loss, friendship skills, etc.
  • Individual Counseling: Individual counseling consists of working with individual students to help meet specific needs. Administrators, teachers, and parents/guardians may refer students for individual counseling. Students may also refer themselves.
  • Consultation: The school counselor consults and collaborates with parents, teachers, administration, and other significant school personnel to provide support and promote student success.
