The Ateneo de Zamboanga Junior High School Guidance and Counseling Office believes that everyone needs assistance in determining alternatives, making decisions, and developing a course of action.

The school guidance programs should be made available to all regardless of race, creed, sex, ability, achievements or aspirations; and that every individual is important and to be respected for his/her individual differences.

Individual counseling should be made available to each student as needed and that the counseling relationship remains confidential unless the counselor has approved release of the information or in emergency situations to protect the individual or others.

At the end of the process, we believe that all students need the opportunity to develop a better understanding and acceptance of him/her as well as an understanding of others.
