School Counseling Mission Statement

The mission of the Provident Charter School Counseling Department is to provide a proactive, comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate program to address students’ academic, career, and social/emotional needs.  The Counseling Department is staffed by professional school counselors who advocate, collaborate, and facilitate individual and system change to ensure every student has the knowledge and skills necessary for academic success and personal growth.  School counselors strive to empower students to embrace their full potential and to achieve their personal and academic aspirations. As professional school counselors at Provident Charter School, we are dedicated to empower every student to achieve academic success, personal and social growth, wellness, and career exploration.    


One of the goals of the Provident School Counseling Department involves connecting families with resources within the school as well as the local community.  Some examples of possible resources include mental health, grief and loss, food and housing, homelessness, behavioral health, after school programs, summer camps, etc. If your child or family could benefit from learning more about available resources, please reach out to your school counselor for more information.  Ms. Amanda Pinto (grades 2-5) can be reached at 412-709-5160 x108 or via email at   Ms. Krista Wible (grades 6-8) can be reached at 412-709-5160 x152 or via email at
