It is important to us to ensure that our students are thinking about who they are as individuals, and as part of a community, as well as where they want to go in their futures, and planning the road ahead.  Our personalized learning plan process encourages students to discover themselves, their skills, interests, etc. and sets them on the road to success. 

The mission of the school counseling department at Destinations Career Academy of Wisconsin is to establish relationships with all students by offering support in their academic, career, and personal/social development. Through key partnerships, our counselors ensure that all students receive an individualized plan that maximizes students’ strengths and is tailored toward their postsecondary aspirations. 

Our school offers a host of services to help your student get the support they need to thrive in school and beyond. Below is a list of specific services, providers, and contact information.
