School Counseling Mission Statement


Guidance and counseling are vital and integral components of the educational program of Henry W. Grady High School that support the personal, social, and educational career development of all students.  The guidance and counseling department believes that it is the function of our school to provide our students with opportunities and challenges that allow them to function effectively in a changing society.  Therefore, we have designed a curriculum consistent with the needs of all students regardless of their academic ability, ethnic background, and socio-economic status or future goals.  The program will assist students in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices.  The guidance and counseling program will develop students’ competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration, and career planning.
