If a student is preoccupied with matters in his personal life, he is not likely to put forward his best effort. Therefore, it is important that personal matters be dealt with so that school can remain a high priority. Although SSC staff members can not solve every problem that students encounter, they are excellent sources of information and can usually make a referral to someone or some place that can help. If you or someone you know should encounter concerns of a personal nature, you are strongly encouraged to bring them to the attention of your Guidance Counselor. This page is intended to help identify commons issues confronting students and some agencies that can help.

Liberty has teamed up with local agencies to improve the health and wellbeing of students. Over 10 local agencies cooperate to improve students' physical and mental health at Liberty High School. Click here to learn more.
