The Student Services Department includes the school counselors, school social worker, prevention coordinator and school psychologist. The purpose of our program is to address the needs of our students in a comprehensive manner so they will have the opportunity to continue developing the skills necessary to learn and grow. We work collaboratively to support all students in the following domains: academics, social/emotional learning, and career exploration.  We provide this support through individual meetings, small groups, and classroom instruction. We are available through phone contact, email and by appointment.  Please reach out for any questions or supports you may need. 



The School Counseling Program at Hudson High School is a collaborative effort involving students, staff members, parents, and the community. We provide support to all students with academic issues, educational and career planning as well as personal/social concerns. Students receive services through classroom instruction, small groups and individual meetings.
