Mission Statement: The Lakeland High School Counseling Department will work to connect, support, and empower all students through the development of academic, career, and personal/social foundations. The school counselor's role is to be an advocate for all students so that each student can achieve their highest potential across every domain. The comprehensive school counseling program will inspire and educate students to become life-long learners by acquiring the skills, knowledge, and ability to succeed in a global society.


In 2014, the Lakeland Counselors received, for the second time, the R.A.M.P. award. R.A.M.P. stands for Recognized A.S.C.A. Model Program. A.S.C.A. is the American School Counselor Association that provides the framework and curriculum for what services a counseling program should be providing for students and the school community. We were the first school counseling program in Michigan to receive this recognition back in 2011!
