• The mission of the Boerne ISD Counseling Team is to use a WHOLE CHILD, student centered, solution focused approach to counseling.  We are committed to showing unconditional positive regard for every student, accepting students for who they are and always putting them first.  We focus on helping to guide and equip students to find their own solutions and to develop the academic, social, and emotional skills needed to reach their post-secondary goals.


  • Based on a two year timeline, eight social and emotional learning skills will be taught by the counselors.  Throughout the 2019-2020 school year, our focus will be on the first four skills: Optimistic Thinking, Self Management, Goal Directed Behavior, and Relationship Skills.
