THE GCHS SCHOOL COUNSELING
- Every student is capable of reaching their fullest potential and will rise to GCHS expectations that include academic, career, and social/emotional outcomes.
- Every student deserves access to equitable education and supports through compassion, patience, and love.
- Every student deserves access to a comprehensive school counseling program that includes collaboration involving school counselors, students, families, teachers, administrators, other school staff, and education stakeholders.

Greeley Central High School students -- empowered to use their voices -- take ownership, and become contributing leaders of society, develop as resilient, culturally competent, and socially, emotionally, and academically prepared individuals who choose an appropriate career or college path and experience their best lives in tomorrow's world.
While providing a safe, nurturing environment, all school counselors collaborate and advocate with students, families, and community stakeholders supporting a challenging and equitable education. We empower all students to become leaders and the best versions of themselves socially, emotionally, and academically reflecting Pride, Class, and Dignity in an ever-changing society.
