Palomares Academy of Health Sciences' School Counseling program is dedicated to ensuring that all students receive the highest level of support in their Academic, College/Career, and Social/Emotional development.

Our School Counseling Team strives to advocate for all student needs, and empower them through individual counseling, classroom curriculum, small group counseling, and domain-specific workshops. 

We put high value on collaboration with the various stakeholders that play a vital role in our students' success.

Our Commitment to our School Community

Palomares Academy’s counseling team is comprised of dedicated, knowledgeable, and caring school counselors who are committed to providing the best and most responsive curriculum to our students.  The counselors offer programs, workshops, and activities that align with the American School Counselor Association National Model. We prepare students for college and career, and focus on the overall wellness of the individual student by providing emotional and mental health support.  Our School Counseling Team (SCT) supports college and career readiness through in-class support and community classroom settings that include student community internships.

Through the persistence, relationships, and on-going follow up with students, our counselors are able to positively impact the school's climate and change lives.  Despite financial, legal status, emotional, family, or academic challenges, our SCT facilitates SST, 504, IEP meetings and engage district and community partners in order to connect students with the resources to help them. As a overall team we look forward to the many ways that we can help students achieve their dreams!
