Mission Statement

The mission of Penn Yan Middle School's Counseling Department is to provide all students the opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become successful citizens and life long learners.  We believe that all students can learn and are dedicated to facilitating a student's academic, career, and personal/social development.

Middle school is the time to:


- Learn about yourself (values, strengths, weaknesses, interests)

- Explore careers

- Gain academic foundation in math, science, language arts, and social studies
