Adapted National Standard/Goal
Our goal is to provide the guidance, counseling, and support necessary for students to be successful in the academic, social/personal, and career planning areas of their lives. Or as we like to say, to provide for students to learn to learn, learn to work, learn to live, and learn to contribute.
At Clackamas Middle College, we believe that every student has a unique combination of gifts and talents which when discovered, developed and given back to the world will provide that student with a sense of accomplishment and personal worth. To be available to help and encourage each student to discover his/her own personal strengths is a primary role of the counselor.
The Counselor assists students in achieving their highest potential both academically and personally. An emphasis is placed on helping the student accept personal responsibility and the seeking of optimal education experiences. Fostering high self-esteem and maintaining a positive school climate are also goals of CMC’s counseling service.
We provide the following services to CMC students:
Parents are encouraged to check regularly with teachers and contact the counselor for further assistance concerning their sons or daughters.
