Supporting the Solon Schools mission, the comprehensive school counseling program encourages all students to reach their fullest potential. The professional school counseling program facilitates the partnership of families, teachers, administrators, special services, and the community by enhancing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.
School counselors work with students to:
support their academic progress and goals;
develop their college and career related knowledge, skills, and pathways;
support their social/emotional development, skills and mindsets.
Students are assigned to school counselors by grade level and stay with their counselor during their two years at Solon Middle School.

Students may make an appointment with their counselor or stop in before/after school or during lunch or study hall. A teacher, administrator, or parent may also refer students to their counselor. SMS counselors facilitate the partnership of families, teachers, administrators, special services, and the community to help all students become ethical and productive members of our diverse learning community.
