Guidance/Career and Transition Counseling

The Mill Creek School is committed to providing a comprehensive counseling program that supports academic, social, personal and career development needs of all its students. The school counseling department will assist students in exploring, planning, and realizing their individual interests, abilities, and goals to help maximize their full potential as productive members of society. The Career and Transition program begins when students enter the program and continues throughout their enrollment. Students work with the Guidance Counselor to help them identify career paths and guide their explorations into future endeavors. In addition, a bi annual Career Day is held to provide students with exposure to guest speakers' career perspectives.
