Mission: The mission of the Carlin Springs Counseling Program is to deliver a comprehensive school counseling curriculum that focuses on social emotional learning in order to help our students reach their full potential inside and outside of the classroom.  Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for all students that promotes kindness, respect and responsibility.   

Vision: The students at Carlin Springs are life-long learners who value themselves, others and their environment.  They recognize they are part of a larger community and strive to be productive members of society by demonstrating compassion, respect and resiliency.  With the support of the comprehensive counseling curriculum, which promotes academic, social-emotional and career learning, each student will achieve life-long success.

Confidentiality:  Privacy and confidentiality are essential to having an effective school counseling program. Carlin Springs recognizes the importance of good communication and good working relationships between students, parents, and the school. Therefore, every effort will be made to protect student and parent privacy rights except under certain limited conditions. These conditions generally included safety issues (harm to self and/others), legal issues, and professional responsibilities (see the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors at www.schoolcounselor.org).
