Counseling Services Mission Statement

The mission of the Grand Prairie ISD Counseling Services Department is to provide all students a safe, inclusive, and positive learning environment that focuses on supporting the holistic needs of students and their families.

We aim to:

Create programs and supports to assist students with removing social, emotional, and economic barriers that are impeding student achievement

Empower every student to design a comprehensive plan for their future by providing college, career, and military readiness exposure and advisement for grades K through 12

Teach students essential life skills through social-emotional learning (SEL) lessons, kindness initiatives, and self-accountability campaigns so students will be able to utilize these skills and lead by example in every facet of their lives
