Counseling Center

  • The ECHS Counseling Center provides a vital link to academic, career, and personal social development for all students. Our professional school counselors are credentialed educators uniquely trained in school counseling, who ensure equity and access to programs and services. ECHS School Counselors help all students in the areas of academic achievement, college/career and social/emotional development,  so that they develop the skills necessary to become well-adjusted, productive adults of tomorrow. 

    School Counselors spend their time directly servicing students. Assisting them with lessons on academic planning, post-secondary exploration and planning, and provide social/emotional support. 

    We encourage students to connect with their School Counselor early in their high school years to gain valuable knowledge, preparation and support as they progress towards graduation and their future.

    OUSD School Counselors follow the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model to develop a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program.
