Orchard View Intermediate School Counseling Program
OVI's School Counseling Program's Mission Statement
The school counseling program at OVI is based on the WV School Counseling Program, which is aligned with the American School Counselor's Association National model. Our mission is to focus on academic, career, and personal development to ensure that every student benefits from a program that is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design and developmental in nature. OVI's program is designed to show linkage with Berkeley County School's School Counseling Program's mission and with OVI's mission to provide "excellence in education for all."

2017 is winding down. It’s hard to believe that 2018 is just around the corner. Our students continue to SOAR as we welcome in 2018.
Our character word for the month of December is “Generosity”. ~~Making someone’s day by giving something away. - -Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out. ~~Frank A. Clark, America politician from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.
The Big 3: 1.Treat others right. 2. Make smart decisions. 3. Maximize your potential.
OVI students can now make a request to see a school counselor by using a link on their ipads. The link appears to be a success if the number of referrals received is any indication.
