    Vision Statement

    It is our core belief that all Chelsea Public Schools’ students, when given the necessary support and access to resources, will be resilient learners who have the skills to reach their full potential. The vision of the Chelsea Public Schools’ comprehensive, student-centered school counseling program is that all students will persevere and be successful academically, socially, and emotionally.  With the help of community partnerships, family involvement, culturally responsive, anti-racist practices, and proactive, data-informed interventions, every student will have the opportunity to learn and grow in a positive learning environment. Our students will develop a sense of respect for individual rights of others while developing their own sense of self. Our students will be college/career ready and possess both soft skills and career-specific technical skills that will allow them to thrive as professionals, community members, and global citizens.

    Mission Statement

    CPS School Counselors create strong relationships, utilize equitable and inclusive practices, and implement multi-tiered systems of support to reach all students and families. We use data driven interventions to meet student needs, as well as, utilize trauma-informed and anti-racist practices in our comprehensive school counseling model. Through strong collaboration between students, families, administration, and educators, we work as a team to support students in developing essential academic, career and social/emotional skills and amplify their voice in their own educational journey. This will lead them to develop a passion for learning and promote personal growth, as well as, the capacity to overcome real-world challenges.
