Working in partnership with parents, students, teachers and administrators; our mission is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that attends to the needs of all students. We support students through responsive and developmental services such as personal and social counseling, academic guidance and support, career exploration, college planning, and student and family advocacy.
Simi Valley High School students are served by four full-time counselors. The Counseling Team is an integral and vital component in the development of the academic and personal goals of all students. We plan, implement and evaluate a counseling program that includes academic, career, personal and social development for all students. We work with parents, teachers and staff to advocate for high academic achievement and appropriate social development for each student.
