The PA Virtual Guidance Counseling Program believes that all students have the potential to succeed. Our mission is to provide personal/social, academic, and career support to all PA Virtual students, while engaging students in the exploration of their future. Our Guidance Department consists of certified K-12 counselors. Our guidance staff provides many services, including individual counseling, classroom guidance and group counseling, to assist students with reaching their full academic and social potential.
Our elementary, intermediate and middle guidance counselors provide grade-specific programming that focuses on social skills needed to prepare students for their futures in and out of the classroom. Counselors visit the homeroom classes of our students to share a lesson based around a social skill or character trait for each grade level.
Our high school counselors offer assistance with the Graduation Projects of our students throughout their high school career, and offer extensive career and college advising to our students. Further, as our students and parents prepare for life after high school, our counselors organize Financial Aid Night and other informational events.
