Counselor's Corner


Jessica Cole, Counseling Department Chairperson

Karina Rice, Counselor (High School)

Rosalind Scaife, Counselor (Academic Center)

The counseling department has walk-in hours from 8:00-10:00 a.m., Monday-Thursday. If you are trying to visit the counseling department outside of these days/times hours (this includes if you are a non Morgan Park student/parent trying to enroll at Morgan Park) you will not be allowed to do so unless you have an appointment. This is to ensure that we can best meet the needs of our students during their lunch periods and throughout the day. To make an appointment outside of 8:00 – 10:00, please email the counselor who works directly with your son/daughter. If you son or daughter is a senior, email Ms. Cole. The counselor’s names, grades, and emails are as follows:

Ms. Cole (grades 10 and 12) – jcole8@cps.edu 
Ms. Rice (grades 11 and 12) – kprice@cps.edu 
Ms. Scaife (grades 7, 8, 9 and 12) – rascaife@cps.edu 

Upon reaching out to a counselor, please allow 24 hours for them to respond. If you do not hear a response within 24 hours feel free to follow up and to include the appropriate assistant principal in that follow-up email:

Mr. Buys (Assistant Principal grades 10/12) – dbuys1@cps.edu 
Ms. Erquhart (Assistant Principal grades 9/11) – kljones5@cps.edu  
Ms. Poston (Assistant Principal grades 7/8) – lposton@cps.edu 

Counselors are here to support, motivate and encourage students to reach their full potential.  We utilize an ASCA based Comprehensive Counseling approach to engage students by way of:
  • Individual and Group Counseling and Mentoring
  • Academic Advising
  • College and Career Planning
  • Social & Emotional Support
As Counselors, we are committed to offering superior service and parental support. Additionally, we encourage community engagement to ensure that all stakeholders are involved in the success of our students.
