School Counseling Mission Statement

The mission of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools' School Counseling Program is to partner with parents, community, faculty and staff to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students thus preparing them with the knowledge and skills to be productive members of society. 

Kellam High School along with six other designated schools received a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Transitioning Exceptional Students Together “TEST” grant to assist military connected students and their families make a smooth transition into the school division. This federal grant provides school, community, and military resources for military connected families who are new to VBCPS.   It also provides resources for staff professional development to increase their awareness of the unique challenges faced by military families. Most importantly, this grant enables extra-curricular programs and tutoring opportunities to support the social and emotional well-being of military connected students.
