Our Vision 

Onalaska School District students are uniquely talented learners who realize their potential  through engaging in personal inquiry and growth, social responsibility, and academic and  career excellence. 

Our Mission 

The mission of the Onalaska School District Counseling Program is to provide a proactive,  comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate program to address students' academic  and career goals in addition to supporting their personal and social needs. This is  accomplished through a partnership with parents/guardians, staff, and community members  to enable all students to become successful, productive, contributing citizens and lifelong  learners in a diverse and changing world. 

Our Unified Beliefs
We believe: 

● Every student can learn and succeed.  

● Every student should have access to an opportunity for high-quality education.  

● Every student should graduate from high school prepared for post-secondary  opportunities.  

● Every student should have access to a school counseling program.  

● Effective school counseling is a collaborative process involving school counselors,  students, families, teachers, administrators, other school staff, and education  stakeholders.  

● School counselors are leaders in the school, district, state, and nation.  

● School counseling programs promote and enhance student academic, career, and  social/emotional outcomes.  

● Through a rigorous, caring environment, students will become enthusiastic, lifelong  learners.  

● All students should have the opportunity to achieve success at their highest individual  potential.  

● Students learn most effectively when they are active in their own learning.  

● Clear goals and high expectations increase whole-child wellness.  

● Our counseling curriculum should challenge each student to fully develop his/her  intellectual, career, and personal/social abilities.
