Middle School Counseling

The focus of the Cohoes City School District’s Counseling Department is to provide a Developmental School Counseling Program consisting of a comprehensive plan of academic, career, and personal development. The program is an essential part of the total school program and supports the goals established for all students. 

Through a series of sequential and developmental activities, the counselor ensures that he/she is meaningfully involved with each student during each year of the middle school experience. In this way the student is in the best position to learn, plan, and make positive decisions with the ongoing support and assistance of a school counselor.

A team approach is necessary for the overall success of a comprehensive, developmental program that requires the involvement of parents, staff members, and community organizations.
