Philosophy- The Fayetteville Public School District adheres to the philosophy that the school counseling program is developmental, sequential, and an essential part of the overall education process. The comprehensive program is built on the assumption that certain educational, career and personal objectives are attainable when school counseling for all students is provided. School counseling is not a service offered by one person but a program coordinated with other educators incorporating a comprehensive curriculum.

Counseling Mission Statement- The Mission of the Fayetteville Public Schools Counseling Program is to maximize the potential of all students, supporting them to become productive and responsible members of society by guiding the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.
