Employability skills are an important part of what students must learn to be successful in the work force.
Each student should recognize the staff as resources to complement their educational success and future goals.
Through the framework of advocacy, leadership, and collaboration, the Counseling & Student Services Department of VMCCA will foster a learning environment in which each student is empowered to attain interpersonal, academic, and career goals. Students are expected to set high expectations for themselves in the classroom, which they will carry with them throughout their lives. By striving for excellence, our students can work confidently toward their goals and understand that perseverance is the key to success. By taking part in a rigorous curriculum and exploring employability skill sets, Silver Hawks will take flight into the world and soar to greatness.
The Vernon Malone comprehensive school counseling program will focus and support the school’s mission to ensure all students graduate on time, college and career ready. The counselors will collaborate with all stakeholders to address and remove barriers to student success and provide equitable access to career, academic and social emotional well being for all students. Through participation in a comprehensive, data driven school counseling program, students will be provided an opportunity to reach their full potential.
