Our school-counseling program is designed to enhance and support students’ educational opportunities and social and emotional well-being.
The counseling department consults with faculty, administration, students and parents about issues relating to child development, behavior and emotional health. Formal assessment services are referred to outside professionals after initial assessment has been determined with faculty and administration. In addition, counseling provides individual, group and school-wide programming for K-12 students to enhance peer relationships and teach social skills, including conflict resolution and anti-bullying strategies.
Leadership and character development are emphasized through the Upper Division HELP committee and Peer Helper programs, which address a variety of teen concerns including Internet safety, substance abuse, diversity and teen mental health. A comprehensive health curriculum for grades 5-9 provides information and a foundation for healthy choices.
