I am Jill Dupras your school counselor.
The mission of the Quincy Jr High School Counseling Department is to provide comprehensive and data-driven academic, college and career readiness, and social/emotional services for all students. Through advocating for equity and access for every student, the school counseling program activities and interventions support student success, inspire lifelong leadership, and develop meaningful contributors to a global society.
What is a school counselor? A school counselor is a counselor and an educator who works in elementary, middle, and high schools to support the academic, personal/social, and career development of all students. This is done by creating a comprehensive, results-based school program that includes:
*Classroom and school-wide events, such as (living a drug-free life), respect and anti-bullying presentations, and College and Career Day
*Coordination and consultation with students, teachers, families, and other support staff to help students succeed
*Small group and individual counseling, on a short-term basis, to help students develop new skills to use at school and at home
*Connecting families to community resources for additional counseling or other services needed
College/ Academic Resources for Students and Parents
As your junior high and high school counselor I am here to support all students emotionally, academically and to help prepare our students for their college/career planning after high school.
