CPS offers online appointment scheduling for first appointments. If you would like to meet with a counselor and have not had an appointment at CPS during the current academic year you are welcome to schedule through the online portal.

Appointments can also be scheduled by calling CPS at (406) 994-4531.

The online scheduling portal is not representative of all appointment times. If you do not see a time that fits with your schedule, please call our office for additional availability. You will receive an email reminder on the day before your appointment with directions for connecting with your counselor and instructions for completing a few initial forms. It is important to complete these forms prior to your appointment.

For students who previously established services at CPS during the current academic year and would like to re-engage with counseling, please contact our office at (406) 994-4531.
