Our goal at James Kenan High School is to maximize students' potential through a comprehensive school counseling program. We address students' academic, personal, social, and career needs. We advocate for our students to ensure a positive high school experience and the obtainment of a high school diploma. Counselors work to collaborate with stakeholders (including legal guardians, school staff, and community members) to foster responsible decision-making, to encourage lifelong learning, and to cultivate respect for individuals and self.
