Red Ribbon Week begins Monday!
We're celebrating healthy, drug-free choices with dress up days!
The guidance and counseling team has a prescriptive focus on educational success for every student. We focus on removing barriers that impede learning, fostering college/career readiness and ensuring equal opportunities for all students. Our team serves as a valuable resource for individualized college exploration, college entrance and state test preparation, student specific classroom success skills, and community-based partnerships.
The mission of the American School Counselors Association (ASCA) is to prepare today’s student’s to become tomorrow’s adults. At North Springs Charter High School, our mission is consistent with the ASCA national standards, with a focus on academic, career, and personal/social development.
Students are encouraged to meet with their assigned counselor for support with their four-year course planning and semester-specific scheduling needs. For specific challenges that could potentially impact a student’s success there are at least three approaches for help offered on as as-needed basis. These modalities include one-on-one referrals, small group counseling, and classroom and/or school-wide guidance interventions.

The facilities listed below provide 24-hour assistance and have shared with the District that they will complete emergency assessments at no cost. If your child already receives support from a mental health provider, you may wish to make contact with that professional first. You may also want to check with your insurance company regarding mental/behavioral health coverage. Please note that the District does not endorse any provider, makes no representations as to the effectiveness of these providers, and makes this information available only as a helpful resource.
