Making Good Choices

The Mitchell Guidance Center is an Alternative Education School associated with the Victoria Independent School District. The school is housed in a nostalgic 100 year-old school building located in the historical downtown district of Victoria, Texas.

Every student at M.G.C. will be empowered to make appropriate choices within a respected, protected and safe environment. In every student there is a strength. We must draw out of each child their personal best.


  • Teach the student self-discipline, cooperation, and responsibility in order to become productive members of society.
  • Encourage students to experience personal success
  • Provide group counseling in areas of drug/alcohol, anger management, personal conflict, and career development.


The curriculum strives to fill-in the academic gaps experienced by our students which are closely connected to their behavior problems.
  • Learning Style Assessments
  • Personal/Group Counseling
  • Life Skills Training
  • Computer Assisted Instruction
