Guidance

Welcome to the Chardon Middle School Counseling Department. We are committed to helping our students achieve their highest potential.  We work with students to promote social, emotional, academic, and career development. 

The CMS Counseling Department has two School Counselors: 

                       Mrs. Karin Hillman and Ms. Kate Lovering

Mrs. Hillman will work with the students whose last names begin with A-L, and Ms. Lovering works with the students whose last names begin with M-Z. Our office is located next to the main office on the first floor of the middle school. You may contact the counselors by:
Family Connections/Naviance 
                              College and Career Readiness Program

This year, CMS is initiating a new program in the counseling department designed to help students begin to navigate and track their career and college pathways. Naviance is a comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness solution that helps districts and schools align student strengths and interests to post-secondary goals, improving student outcomes and connecting learning to life. We will be using this new program consistently throughout their years at the middle and high school to explore vocational options, set goals, search colleges, track progress, and to help connect them with resources that will help them to succeed.
 
Students and parents can access the system by using the Family Connections link located to the right under “Links.”
 
Sixth Graders will focus on logging into the system, start to build their profiles by completing the CareerKey, and complete a brief student survey.
 
Seventh Graders will log into the system, start to explore different types of careers when they take the Career Cluster Finder, save clusters of careers so they can investigate various career pathways, and complete a brief student survey. 
 
Eighth Graders will log into the system, and focus primarily on narrowing down career path options by using data from the Career Key and Cluster Finder to help with scheduling high school classes. They will also start to build a resume so they can maintain records of all their extracurricular activities and achievements throughout high school.     
 
 
CMS Counseling Programs Also Include:

Schoolwide Programs - Student of the Month Recognition
Classroom Guidance Lessons - Social Conflict Prevention, Student Success Skills, Problem Solving, Personal Safety, and Career Exploration
Small Group Counseling - Student Success Skills, Family Changes, Self-Control, Friendship Skills, Grief and Loss and Self-Confidence
