School counseling programs are collaborative efforts benefiting students, parents, teachers, administrators and the overall community. School counseling programs should be an integral part of every student's daily educational environment, and school counselors should be partners in student achievement.

Some may ask, "What do school counselors do?" The more important question is, "How are students different as a result of what school counselors do?"

Hanover County Public Schools adheres to the American School Counselor Association National Model, which is a framework for a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program.

School Counseling Vision Statement

The vision of Bell Creek Middle School’s comprehensive school counseling program is rooted in the belief that all students are problem solvers, communicators, and models of lifelong learning. Students from Bell Creek Middle School encapsulate the ability to be productive citizens who set and achieve goals across social/emotional, academic, and career domains. They are models of hope, resilience, and empathy. They have the skills to successfully navigate, compete, and lead in an ever-changing world.
