  • Vision Statement

    West Port High School students are inspired to achieve and advocate for their own personal success in college, career, and life. Our students are ambitious, innovative, productive, and well-educated members of society.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of the West Port High School Comprehensive School Counseling Program is to identify the specific academic, career, and social/emotional needs of all students through a needs assessment, data analysis, and collaboration with stakeholders to deliver evidence-based interventions. Our school counselors advocate for all students to have a positive and nurturing learning environment that promotes high achievement and will be directly involved in preparing students for post-secondary success. As a result, all students will be able to identify and apply their personal strengths to achieve their academic, career, and social/emotional goals.

Required documents for enrollment can be uploaded to the application or faxed to 352-291-4025.  Any additional questions, please call our guidance team at 352-291-4004 or e-mail individual team members.
