The Lee County High School Counseling and Guidance Department offers a group of services designed to assist students to develop their talents and capabilities and to benefit from the school's educational program.

Counselors assist students in planning for both the present and the future and help students become self-directing and responsible school citizens. We encourage parents to be active in the student's planning process. The responsibility to make decisions ultimately belongs to the parents and students. Counselors are available for consultation regarding:

The program also provides mechanisms for assisting individuals with resolution of problems which inhibit healthy development and academic achievement.
