Welcome to Wilcox Central High Guidance Counselor's Page


What is the School Guidance and Counseling Program?

The purpose of the Guidance and Counseling Program is to support home and school efforts and to promote students' academic/educational, personal, and career development.  It is an integral part of each school's total educational program.  The program is designed to

  • Foster positive attitudes toward school learning, and work
  • Improve academic achievement
  • Encourage personal responsibility
  • Foster respect for self and others


 What Are the Major Responsibilities of the School Counselor?

  • Counseling both small and large groups of students and individual students with personal and academic concerns
  • Addressing needs of students in classroom guidance activities
  • Consulting with teachers, staff, and parents about meeting the developmental needs of all students
  • Referring students with severe issues to appropriate community resources after consultation with their parents
  • Coordinating ACT Aspire, ACT w/Writing, and ACT Workkeys testing
  • Assisting students with financial aid and scholarship resources; college, university and military information

 How is a Student Referred to the School Counselor?

Students may be referred to the counselor by parents, teachers, administrators, peers, or they may self refer.

Students may come by the counseling offices between classes and complete a referral form.  Students may leave this form with the counselor.  The counselor will then call the student out of class (preferably an elective) at an appropriate time.

Students may also make their requests known to their classroom teachers.  The teacher can then complete a referral form for the counselor.

For academic purposes, Dr. Parker is the 9th & 10th grade counselor.  Ms. Carstarphen is the 9th & 12th grade counselor and Ms. Pritchett is the 10 & 11th grade counselor.  For emergency purposes, students may be referred to either counselor.  This will be up to the discretion of the student and teacher.

Parents & Students,

We are looking forward to a great year and want to be available to each of you in any way that we can.  It is our desire this year to work closely with each of you to provide the very best programs and resources.  We encourage input from you about your needs and ideas.

If we can be any help to you, please call us.
