Meet Your School Counselor

At MVCSC, we aim to engage, educate, and empower all students.  One of the many ways we work toward that goal is through our school counseling program. Each MCE student works with the school counselor on a regular basis through monthly classroom lessons.  These lessons cover a variety of character traits and college and career planning.  The counselor also sees students in small groups to work to develop new skills or offer support.  Students may work with the school counselor individually as needed or to address ongoing needs.

The Mt. Comfort school counselor also coordinates helping families access community resources.  If your family is in need of assistance with groceries, clothing, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or other needs, please contact the MCE counselor to get connected with local programs to address your needs.
