ECS Counseling Team Mission:

The mission of the counseling department at Environmental Charter School is to provide a comprehensive program to support the whole child and enhance the social/emotional, academic, and career development of all students.

ECS’s ultimate objective is to graduate engaged citizens who are problem solvers, critical thinkers, and thoughtful innovators prepared for an ever-evolving society.  Our goal is to assist students in acquiring attitudes, knowledge, and skills that enable students to thrive as they are immersed in authentic learning experiences.

The ECS counseling department enables students to overcome barriers to learning by building coping, self-regulation, and conflict resolution skills. By advocating for students, counselors aim to ensure every student has access to a rigorous academic learning environment in which they can achieve success now and in the future.

The counseling program at ECS focuses on positive and beneficial development activities for children and adolescents. In addition to helping students in classroom guidance activities, the counselor works with students in small group and individual settings throughout the year.
