School Counselors make Change
  • Every Child deserves a champion - an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connections and insists they become the best that they can possibly be.



    Mission Statement

    The mission of the Cattaraugus-Little Valley Counseling Department is to provide and support a comprehensive counseling and guidance plan that will assist all students in a caring and cooperative community, to ensure social and emotional development, along with academic and career success, establishing lifelong learners.


    Vision Statement

    CLV Counselors believe every student can learn and all have an equal right to access a certified school counselor and to participate in a comprehensive school counseling program designed to support student success: The following principles are the foundation for the program:


    • All students can learn and should be given the opportunity to do so.

    • All students have dignity and worth and have a right to a safe, mutually respectful healthy learning environment

    • Learning involves the education of the whole person and is a continuous lifelong process

    • All students have the right to participate in the school counseling program.

    • Learning requires the active participation, mutual respect and individual accountability of students, teachers, staff, parents and the community.

    • Diversity is to be respected and appreciated as we foster unity among our students, faculty, staff and community.
