Fort Cherry High School Counseling Department
Our program is based on the concept which views guidance as preventative and continuous rather than corrective and remedial. Our goal is to address the needs of all children, not just those who need specialized help. Services are provided to help the students of Fort Cherry High School adjust to and pass through thephysical, social, emotional, and academic developmental changes that occur during the school years as smoothly as possible. Developmental guidance aims for the development of every aspect of the student's being to the fullest potential for the benefit of the student as well as society.
