The Mission of the Counseling Office

The mission of the ABS MS/HS counseling office is to enhance the education of our students by providing timely academic, social, and individual support throughout the year. Our goal is to foster and maintain a rich learning environment in which each unique student may thrive and achieve his full potential.

In addition, our goal is to provide our upperclassmen with all available resources so they may be able to make a fully informed decision when they choose which college or university they will attend after graduation. Our office is fully dedicated to helping each and every unique student achieve his/her post-graduation educational goals.
