Welcome to AVHS Counseling Department

Counseling Services

AVHS School Counselors are professional advocates for students, who develop comprehensive programs that improve student learning, devote their time to direct delivery of services to students (curriculum, individual planning, system support and responsive services) and operate within a school culture in which every student receives benefits of the program (PUSD K-12 comprehensive counseling mission).

Below, you may access the grade level specific guidance lessons that AVHS counselors will be implementing throughout the school year.
