Welcome to the Guidance Office!

The Dock Mennonite Academy Guidance Department seeks to be an advocate for all students within the Dock community. We facilitate the academic, spiritual, and lifestyle development of our students by providing caring and supportive services that give respect and responsibility to each individual.  

The Guidance Department strives to help students independently use their learning to meet the following three primary goals:

  • implement strategies for healthy social, emotional, and spiritual growth
  • explore and determine a clear and viable career or educational pathway based on gifts, passion, and strengths
  • effectively participate and contribute to the larger global community.

 Please feel free to connect with your child’s counselor as concerns arise or if there are any additional ways we can be of support!
