GBN School Counseling Mission

The mission of Glenbard North’s School Counseling Program is to provide students with the opportunity to strengthen and foster their continuous improvement-and achievement. Our mission complements and enriches the Glenbard District 87 mission by addressing the academic, social/emotional, and post-secondary/career development of our students.  

School Counselors, in collaboration with stakeholders (students, parents, teachers, administrators, support staff, and the community) continuously strive to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling model focusing on the following priorities:

  • Classroom curriculum and individual conferences that help students become critical thinkers and positive decision-makers, while also planning for their future.
  • Removal of barriers to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
    Open lines of communication with parents and guardians ensuring student support at school and at home.
  • Communicate available resources to students, and encourage them to utilize innovative learning tools and supports.
  • The treatment of all students as valuable, life-long learners, providing them with full access to resources and interventions in place to help them be successful in present and future endeavors.
