FHS Counseling Center

Forney High School Counseling Center

Welcome! - The FHS counseling team's goal is to provide a comprehensive academic counseling program to assist students in maximizing their potential.

Our mission is focused on delivering a developmentally age-appropriate and sequential school counseling program that is aligned with the American School Counseling Association standards. Together we will focus on the needs, interests, and issues related to the stages of student growth through academic, career and personal/social development.

We will work in partnership with students, staff, family, community members and employers to prepare students to become effective learners, achieve success in school, live successful and rewarding lives, and develop into contributing members of our society.
