The mission of Admiral Richard E. Byrd Middle School Counseling Department is to provide a developmental, comprehensive, and collaborative program designed to meet all students’ academic, career, and personal/social needs for the purpose of building effective self-managers, life-long learners and active contributors to society.
As professional school counselors, our vision is to create a learning environment that fosters healthy growth and development and allows all students to reach their full potential. Admiral Richard E.

To successfully accomplish our vision, the school counseling department will filter through every aspect of the school system and gain full participation and support from school personnel, parents, and students. Together, we will ensure that our students have the knowledge, character, initiative and self-confidence needed to be successful in all their endeavors.
