School Counseling

The School Counseling Department is designed to meet the mission of Totino-Grace High School by assisting students fulfill their unique potential and assist them to explore opportunities to pursue their specific interests. We strive to know, care for, and support our students and their needs. Whether a student is struggling academically, emotionally, or planning for their future, we join them on the journey. It is our goal to encourage and challenge students to surpass their own expectations so that they may achieve academic success and experience personal fulfillment.

Students are divided alphabetically into three sections. Each counselor is responsible for working with the students in their alphabetical section. In addition to monitoring our individual students, we work together to create support groups, post-high planning events, and classroom presentations.

In order to address more specific needs, our staff also includes a part-time psychologist and chemical health counselor. Feel free to contact our office at 763.586.6302 to speak with any member of our department. We look forward to meeting the needs our all students
