Welcome to the Counselors' Page!

“The greatest truth must be recognition that in every man, in every child is the potential for greatness.” -Bobby Kennedy

Berryville School Counseling Department Mission/Vision Statement:

The school counseling program will work to enable all students in the high school to reach and attain educational success by providing guidance and counseling in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development as well as through a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, administrators, social workers, and the community to enhance learning and success. This program will help students overcome challenges associated with learning and development and will advocate for an environment that strives for achievement for all students regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, etc. Diversity is respected and appreciated as school counselors enhance unity among students, school stakeholders, and the community. The school counseling program will strive to help students develop competencies to address deficits, strengthen capabilities and skills, and address personal responsibility as students work towards postsecondary education and/or entrance into the workforce.

The ACT test is a college entrance exam accepted by all universities and colleges in the US. The higher a student’s ACT score, the more chances he or she has to qualify for admission, scholarships, and financial aid.

ADE pays for all Arkansas public school juniors to take the test once for free. This year the test will be given on 2/23/21.  All students should set up an account at https://www.act.org and keep track of their user name and password.  Counselors will not have access to this information and students should not share it with anyone. 

STUDENTS QUALIFY FOR FREE OR REDUCED LUNCH HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THE TEST TWO ADDITIONAL TIMES FOR FREE. PLEASE CONTACT THE HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELORS FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Alma Mater

ALMA MATER

Staunch and faithful thou will stand
Through years to come, and never
Shall we fail to give our faith
To thee forever.

The regal purple, sun's fair gold
Un-furls against the sky,
In chorus with all loyal hearts
From happy days gone by.
Our Alma Mater, hail to thee
Forever, Berryville High!
