The Dover High School counseling program envisions a future where all of our students are lifelong learners equipped with educational excellence and hope. They actively seek new and challenging experiences that expand their worldviews. Our students are college and career ready and foster excellence through innovation. Students are equipped with leadership skills along with academic and vocational knowledge to achieve their post-secondary goals. All students are empowered with skills of empathy, compassion, and self-worth to positively impact a diverse community. 

The comprehensive school program empowers all students to achieve their highest potential, prepared to meet their college and career goals; preparing them with Educational Excellence and leadership. The school counseling program provides a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment in order to deliver a comprehensive, data-driven program that helps all students, regardless of background or individual circumstance, to gain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for academic success, career exploration and social/emotional development to become productive members of society. The school counseling department partners with other educators and stakeholders to advocate for equity, access, and success for all.
