UPHS GUIDANCE MISSION STATEMENT:
The Upper Perkiomen School District Counseling Department is designed to enhance and teach students the skills needed to be independent and productive citizens in a diverse society. Students are taught how to maximize their learning of academic, personal, social, and career skills, and are encouraged to cultivate their independence and creativity. Our program focuses on needs, interests, and issues related to the various stages of personal growth and development. Connecting students and families to services and resources is a core component to our program. The counseling department is an integral part of the total educational experience within the Upper Perkiomen School District.
