The Mission of Kansas Comprehensive School Counseling Program:
The mission of Kansas School Counseling Programs is to prepare all students to be contributing and productive citizens while supporting the academic mission of the school. School counseling programs are integral to the mission of the schools and designed to support and enhance student learning, achievement, college, and career readiness and facilitate the academic, career, and personal/social development of all Kansas students. School counselors collaborate with other educators, parents/guardians, and the community to ensure all students are prepared with the knowledge and competencies to be successful in their future.
To Accomplish this Mission:
The comprehensive guidance and counseling program is an integral part of a school district's total educational program. It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by school counselors with the active support of parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, and the community. As a developmental program, it addresses the needs of all students by facilitating their academic, career development, personal/social development, helping create positive and safe learning climate in schools, as well as helping students feel connected to school and to at least one caring adult.
At the same time, the program assists students as they face issues and resolve problems that prevent their healthy development. The program is delivered through the following four program components:
Guidance and Counseling Curriculum - structured group and classroom presentations.
Individual Student Planning - appraisal, development of Personal Plans of Study, and successful k-12 and post-secondary transitions.
Responsive Services - individual counseling, small-group counseling, consultation, and referral.
System Support - program management, program evaluation, fair-share responsibilities, professional development, staff and community relations, consultation, committee participation, community outreach, and research and development.

Victoria High School now offers students the option to take the ACT test at school and during the school day. Now, instead of students having to give up a Saturday in an unfamiliar Hays or Russell location, surrounded by strangers, VHS students can take the ACT test in the comfort of their own school, surrounded by their friends, and all within their normal school day. Students do still have many opportunities to take the regularly scheduled national test at a national test location in addition to also testing at school. the national test dates are detailed below. If you are interested in learning more about the ACT test options, please see Mrs. Kori Braun.
ACT Offered at VHS
|Victoria High School is now offering students two opportunities to take the ACT test at school and within their school day. The first option is in the Fall and is open to all Juniors and Seniors. There is a cost to the student for this option. The second option is offered in the Spring, and is only open to Juniors. This option is paid for by the State of Kansas, so it costs the student nothing.||
Students are not restricted to only the "In District" ACT test options. VHS students are encouraged to take advantage of multiple ACT Test opportunities including the National test opportunities offered in Hays. Please see Mrs. Kori Braun for more information on these or for help in registering for one of these test dates.
