DACC School Counseling Department

The Delaware Area Career Center School Counseling Department offers a developmental and comprehensive program. We are available to assist and advise each student in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development. In collaboration with parents/guardians, faculty, and the community, school counselors and support staff assist and support students in developing skills that will support their personal growth as a lifelong learner, a quality leader, and a critical thinker.

It is our hope that you will find the information provided to be useful as we work together toward high school graduation and post-secondary planning.


Each of our counselors focuses on a set number of labs in order to get to know those students better. Find out which counselor your student is associate with.
