WCMS Counseling Department

Counseling Program Overview

Wilkinson County Middle School’s counseling department will deliver a structured, comprehensive counseling program that supports the school goals through effective communication. By removing barriers, we will provide all students with equal opportunity for a success program that focuses on the rapidly changing needs of adolescents. These needs can affect every aspect of the young person's life.

As students in grades 6-8 work to form an identity, counselors help them to balance these needs within the school setting. The counseling department stresses development in three major areas: academic achievement,career and decision- making, and personal/social development.
