Going beyond academic growth to build social and emotional fluency

Counselors are an integral part of our goal to educate the whole child. They implement our social and emotional program from preschool to high school, working with teachers, parents, and outside professionals to teach students about relationships, conflict resolution, and a variety of other social and emotional skills.

Additionally, High School Counselors assist students in their academic and career plans for after high school. This includes guiding students to decisions about programs and universities and assisting in the application process. High School Counselors also encourage students to participate in university fairs, so that students can find the best university and program according to their goals.
