    Mission Statement
     
    The mission of the Downingtown Area School District School Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. In partnership with the school community, counselors provide opportunity to develop a foundation that allows students to identify and explore individual abilities and interests. School counselors facilitate a support system that promotes academic and personal achievement and fosters the skills necessary for students to grow and contribute as productive members of a global society.
     
    Regular Hours of Operation
     
    The Counseling Department is open year-round Monday-Friday from 7:00am to 3:00pm. Counselors are available during the school year from 7:25am-2:55pm each day school is in session, and during limited hours in the summer. Click here to view our summer 2021 office hours. 
     
    Appointment Scheduling
     
    The counseling department operates on a "walk-in" approach - students are not required to have an appointment to stop in and see their counselor. If the counselor is not available when a students drops in, they will be asked to schedule an appointment at a later time. Students are welcome to schedule an appointment if they prefer, and parents are encouraged to schedule an appointment as well to ensure a counselor will be available when they come in.  
     
    To ensure the safety of our counseling office staff and students, in-person meetings are limited to 15 minutes. Appoitments can also take place virtually via Zoom. To request an appointment, a student can fill out the following Google doc: https://forms.gle/SdtMGbv7DKy5shR86
