School Counseling & Guidance Program

UCSD School Counseling Mission:

The Urbandale Community School District counseling program will bring learning to life by creating a positive, safe environment for students to be academically successful and life-ready through intentional planning. 

 UCSD Vision:  

Professional school counseling programs reach all and teach all by connecting and advocating to support the academic and social-emotional well-being of 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. 

We believe professional school counselors are vital because we contribute to student success by creating a positive, safe, and healthy school culture. 

We believe all students can learn and achieve their goals. 

We believe we deliver our programs in service of students. 

We believe in collaboration to support individuals to navigate the school setting and transitions. 

We believe with our support and the development of strategies and skills our students can advocate their needs. 

We believe we support social, emotional, and character education. 

We believe our support is vital to all students’ success.
