Guidance & Counseling

Our Mindset

The Alief ISD Counseling Department consists of dedicated professional school counselors who, in collaboration with local partnerships, embrace the uniqueness of all learners while encouraging, educating, and empowering them towards success.

Our Mission

Provide equitable and relevant resources and opportunities towards positive citizenship, healthy relationships, mental health, and valuable academic and post-secondary planning through a comprehensive school counseling program.

Alief ISD's Counseling Program is a comprehensive, developmental, results-based school counseling program that aligns with the state's model. Professional school counselors are available on all Alief ISD's campuses to provide services for all of our students in the following areas:

Guidance Curriculum - to help students develop their full educational potential; 

Responsive Services - to intervene on behalf of any student whose immediate personal concerns or problems put the student’s continued educational, career, personal, or social development at risk;

Individual Planning - to help students plan, monitor, and manage their own educational, career, personal, and social development; 

System Support - to support the efforts of teachers, staff, parents, and other members of the system in promoting the educational, career, personal, and social development of students.

Each of our high school campuses has a College Access Counselor to personally assist students in preparing and achieving post-secondary readiness.
