Counseling

Our Mission

The Mission of the Chesterfield County Public Schools Professional School Counseling System is to empower all students to become productive and contributing members of society. In partnership with families, staff, and the community, school counselors provide a comprehensive program that addresses students’ academic, personal/social and career development

Counselors assist teachers and school administrators in the identification of students’ academic needs and help determine strategies to maximize learning. Services are provided in the areas of academic guidance and counseling; the interpretation of academic testing; college and career counseling; and personal/social counseling. These services are delivered via Classroom Counseling; Small Group Counseling; and Individual Counseling.

Students with special needs that are outside of the typical student-teacher or student-counselor relationships may require services via crisis intervention teams; the Student Support Team; and/or the Child Study Team which are organized helping processes made up of the school’s student support services professionals and led by designated members of the school’s administrative/leadership team.

The Student Support Services Department at Matoaca High School consists of the school’s psychologist, social worker, two school nurses, and five professional school counselors. Each Matoaca High School student is assigned a professional school counselor to address their individual needs.
