All students will be valued and provided results-based instruction in the areas of Career, Academic, and Personal Social Development, through a comprehensive guidance program, as they acquire skills, abilities and attitudes that empower them to be lifelong contributing members of society.
The Marquette Guidance Program is a comprehensive model which incorporates four programmatic components.
Curriculum: consists of activities of structured developmental experiences presented systematically through classroom and/or group activities for grades nine through twelve. The curriculum is organized around three major areas:
* Knowledge of Self and Others
* Educational and Vocational Planning
* Career Planning and Exploration
Individual Planning: consists of activities that help all students plan, monitor, and manage their own learning as well as their personal and career development. Individual planning is implemented through such strategies as advisement, appraisal (analysis of student ability and achievement), and team meetings.
Responsive Services: consists of activities to meet immediate needs and concerns of students whether these needs or concerns require information, consultation, counseling, or referral.
System Support: consists of management activities that establish, maintain, and enhance the comprehensive guidance program. This component is implemented and carried out through activities in the following areas:
* Professional Development
* Staff and Community Relations
* Consultations with Teachers
* Advisory Councils
* Community Outreach
