Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program Components

Individual Counseling:
The social, emotional, and academic wellbeing of all students is of prime concern and importance. Counseling on academic performance is usually short-term and provided on an as-needed basis. Regularly scheduled appointments can be arranged for social or emotional issues that interfere with a student's learning. Appointments are usually made during PAWS blocks, lunch, or after school. Counseling may be requested by students or parents. Referrals to our school psychologist, school social worker, or mental health counselors, as well as private mental health professionals, may be provided for issues that are beyond the scope of a school counselor. Confidentiality applies to conversations with students that occur during counseling appointments.

Group Counseling:
Various groups are facilitated throughout the school year. A number of popular groups are listed below. Groups are run if there are enough children with a shared issue that would benefit from participating in a group. Individual counseling is available when a specific group is not offered. Parental permission is required for students to participate in a group.

  • How to Handle Stress Group
  • New Student Group
  • Organization Skills Group
  • Study Skills Group

Academic Advising and Placement: The school counselors take into account assessment results and seek out teacher recommendations to make sure students are placed in classes that are challenging, but appropriate to the individual student's ability.
