The mission of Hunterdon Central’s Counseling Services Department is to assist all students in academic development, personal/social development and career development.
To best serve the needs of our students, Hunterdon Central’s Counseling Services Department operates in the structure of a “House System.” Counselors work in teams to provide services to a specific class of students.
A team of counselors first meets students when they arrive at Hunterdon Central as freshmen. The same counselors will guide these students through the next four years of their high school experience, advising on academic curriculum and course selection, and assisting in overall development.
This “House System” structure allows a counselor to get to know each student as an individual; this is particularly valuable during the college admissions and career development process, when it provides an optimum structure for counselor-student guidance.
In addition to grade level counselors, Hunterdon Central’s Counseling Services Department also provides specialized counseling services in two critical areas:
- Student Assistance Counselors work to provide confidential counseling and intervention, as well as social and emotional services and support to students, in the area of addictions.
- A College & Career counselor - specialist in the college admissions area - works with grade level counselors to provide an expert, professional approach to the college research, selection, and admissions process.
The Counseling Department presents a series of parent seminars on key counseling issues every year, which are available on Hunterdon Central Television's Youtube Channel .
