Mission Statement

  • The mission of the Northern Lehigh School District school counseling program is to create a challenging and supportive environment dedicated to meeting the diverse educational needs of all learners and to help them achieve their full potential and prepare for life after high school. Northern Lehigh school counselors partner with educators, parents or guardians, and the community to promote lifelong learning and to encourage them to become productive members of society.

Counseling Services

    • Threat of harm to oneself

    • Threat of harm to another

    • Any report of abuse or neglect or suspected abuse or neglect

    • Reports of behavior which could reasonably lead to harm to self or others

    • Court orders requiring disclosure
