The mission of the Lee Central High School Guidance Department is to provide a developmental program that will facilitate and support the educational achievement of all students. The program focuses on personal development, academic success, and postsecondary planning. Our goal is to promote students’ sense of responsibility personally, socially, and academically, so that students can work towards their full potential. The LCHS Guidance Program is an integral part of the school program and requires the cooperative efforts of teachers, administrators, counselors, and parents.
The following services are provided:
* Academic Guidance: Guidance which assist students and their parents to acquire knowledge of curricula choices available to students, to plan a program of studies, to arrange and interpret academic testing, and to seek post-secondary academic opportunities.
* Career Guidance: Guidance which helps students to acquire information about the world and explore career possibilities.
* Personal/Social Counseling: Assist students in developing an understanding of self, the rights and needs of others, how to resolve conflicts, and how to define individual goals that reflect their interests, abilities, and aptitudes.
