Our Mission

 
The mission of the UHS Counseling program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, college and career, and personal, social, emotional development of all students. The UHS Counselors advocate for an environment that supports all students, helping them achieve their full potential along with a balanced high school experience.
 
Counselors develop and implement a comprehensive program that:
  • Encourages all students to develop a high school and post-secondary education plan based on their own interests, talents and skills.
  • Provides career awareness through guidance lessons, career inventories, career technical classes and guest speakers.
  • In partnership with the Irvine Unified School District, parents, or guardians, and the community, supports students to become active learners, responsible citizens, and productive members of society.

The counseling staff supports all students regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability.
