About

Welcome to the Academic Counseling Department!

Academic Counselors are available for students on a drop-in basis. Parents may contact their student’s counselor by phone or email. We request that parents make appointments with their student’s grade level counselor to ensure availability.  In addition, we prefer that the student accompany parents to the meeting to ensure all parties are involved regarding the educational plan and commitments.  Counselors are often meeting with students, facilitating presentations, and are required to attend meetings and conferences which may pull them away from the office at various times.

We look forward to working with you this year.

Vision Statement

Pioneer’s Academic Counseling Department provides all students comprehensive and equitable school counseling services to ensure that they are prepared to become globally competitive, lifelong learners.

Mission Statement

The Pioneer High School academic counselors are leaders and advocates in education by implementing essential programs, focusing on academic development, personal/social development, and career planning. School Counselors will establish and maintain partnerships with school and community organizations that promote student achievement.

Academic counselors work to facilitate each student’s educational, career, and social/personal development by utilizing a comprehensive and collaborative approach. The department supports teaching and learning by assuring that all students achieve academic success and develop life skills through the acquisition of academic, career, and personal/social competencies, which will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world.

Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive school counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention activities through classroom presentations, individual meetings, and small and/or large group presentations. Please refer to the Academic Counseling Calendar for more information regarding the dates and times of these presentations.
