    The Lancaster High School Counseling Department provides a comprehensive developmental guidance program as framed through the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) National Model.  The LHS counseling team is committed to the development and excellence of the whole student (academic achievement, career development, social and personal development).  Our counseling team implements a comprehensive school counseling program by providing classroom guidance, individual student planning, responsive services, and system support.   Our commitment to student excellence is a family affair which includes the collaboration, input, and solutions of all stakeholders - students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community.  The counselors are resources and serve as channels to assist students with future discovery. We are here to enhance student learning experiences, personal development, and awareness.  The LHS Counseling Department strives for our students to be prepared and successful during their post-secondary life in college and career while contributing to our 21st-century world.
