UCSD School Counseling Mission:

The School Counselor will promote academic, personal/social, and career development skills with all students.

 UCSD Vision:  

Counselors work to connect students and families with school in a positive way that instills joy in learning and gives support to each student. 

Our Mindsets align with those of the American School Counselor Association.  They describe the knowledge, attitudes and skills students need to achieve academic success, college and career readiness and social/emotional development.

Mindset 1: Belief in development of whole self, including a healthy balance of mental, social/emotional and physical well-being

Mindset 2:  Sense of acceptance, respect, support and inclusion for self and others in the school environment

Mindset 3:  Positive attitude toward work and learning

Mindset 4: Self-confidence in ability to succeed

Mindset 5:  Belief in using abilities to their fullest to achieve high-quality results and outcomes

Mindset 6: Understanding that postsecondary education and lifelong learning are necessary for long-term success
