Henry Abbott Technical High School's Counseling Department helps students in three main areas:

Academic involvement includes acquiring skills, attitudes and knowledge that contribute to effective learning in school; employing strategies to achieve success in school; and understanding the relationship of academics to the world of work, and to life at home and in the community.

Career development provides the foundation for the acquisition of skills, attitudes and knowledge that enable students to make a successful transition from school to the world of work and from job to job across the life span. Career development includes the employment of strategies to achieve future career success and job satisfaction as well as fostering an understanding of the relationship among personal qualities, education and training and the world of work. The goals and competencies ensure that students develop career goals as a result of their participation in a comprehensive plan of career awareness, exploration and preparation activities.

Personal and social development provides the foundation for personal and social growth as students progress through school and into adulthood. It contributes to academic and career success by helping students understand and respect themselves and others, and acquire effective interpersonal skills. This is achieved through individual meetings with students, delivery of developmental guidance lessons and various presentations/speakers.
