Welcome to the Senior High Counseling Center

 
 
The school counselors at MASH are available to meet the academic, social/emotional, and career exploration needs of all students in acquiring and applying the skills and knowledge needed to become life-long learners by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. Counselors are also available to meet the diversity of each student’s needs by developing and fostering relationships built on mutual respect and care in a safe, challenging, and supportive environment that encourages all students to take risks in the learning process that are developmentally appropriate. MASH counselors are advocates for all students to be valued as contributing members of our school community.

The Mechanicsburg Area Senior High School Counseling Office strives to deliver the following competencies to students based on American School Counselor Association standards for academic, career and personal/social development:

Academic Development – Students will acquire the attitudes, knowledge and skills that contribute to effective learning in school and across the life span, complete school with the academic preparation essential to choose from a wide range of substantial post-secondary options and will understand the relationship of academics to the world or work and to life at home and in the community.

Career Development – Students will acquire the skills to investigate the world of work in relation to knowledge of self and to make informed career decisions, employ strategies to achieve future career goals with success and satisfaction and understand the relationship between personal qualities, education, training and the world of work

Personal/Social Development – Students will acquire the knowledge, attitudes and inter-personal skills to help them understand and respect self and others, make decisions, set goals and take necessary action to achieve goals and understand safety and survival skills.
