COVID 19 Update:

Washburn Counselors want students and families to know that we are here to support you while we're going through this time of uncertainty.  Please send us an email if you have any questions or want to connect!  Please click on the link below for a video from the counselors and CCC staff about what we've been up to (we'll be uploading vidoes periodically until school resumes).

We are located in room 111, right by the main entrance (door #10) off 50th Street!

How to make an appointment: 

  • Come to the Counseling Office before or after school, or during passing time, and you can make an appointment with our Counseling clerk Debbie.
  • During the school day, you'll need a pass from your teacher.
  • If the matter is urgent, inform the clerk. We'll do our best to see you immediately.

 

We help students with academics, personal/social, and college and career:

  • Academic assistance
  • Course registration
  • Tracking progress toward graduation
  • Credit recovery opportunities
  • Postsecondary planning 
  • Ways to get involved and connected to Washburn 
  • Problem-solving and decision-making strategies
  • Referrals for support, including mental and chemical health services
  • Challenging life circumstances
  • Much more but for the sake of keeping this list somewhat brief, we'll leave it at this!
