Hello and WELCOME to the OCMS Counseling webpage!
My name is Katie Jones and I began my school counseling career last year (2019-2020) at Owensboro Catholic Middle School. Below, I’ve mapped out the services our comprehensive school counseling program offers OCMS students.
Please, feel free to call the school at (270) 683-0480 or email me at [email protected] if you have any questions!
Direct Student Services
Direct students services are provided for OCMS students through individual counseling sessions, group counseling, and classroom guidance lessons. Individual Learning Plans (ILP) are administered as both direct and indirect students services.
Indirect Student Services
Indirect student services are provided for OCMS students through collaboration with teachers and parents, consulting with teachers and parents, as well as referring students outside to services as needed.
Course scheduling, guidance curriculum, and ILPs are all components of the school guidance counselor’s hand in program planning. This planning requires the collaboration of teachers, parents, students, and other administrative staff. Planning for incoming 7th graders and for rising high school freshmen requires special coordination between the OCS 4-6 Campus, OCMS, and OCHS.
Additional school support is provided for OCMS students through helping to create, cultivate, and sustain a culture of achievement. We strive “to provide excellence in Catholic faith formation and academics which prepare students to become responsible individuals as well as members of their family, Church, and community” (OCS Mission Statement).
