Our School Counseling Program provides small group opportunities on a variety of topics based on student needs and school-wide data. The group topics cover individual student planning and responsive services topics. Groups typically meet once a week for approximately one hour after school or rotating class periods during the school day.
Small Groups that may be offered:
- Study Skills
- College and Career Planning
- Girls Group/Boys Group
- New Student
If you are interested in learning more about the groups that are available, please contact your assigned counselor or school social worker.
Individual Student Planning
“School counselors coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students in establishing personal goals and developing future plans.”
Individual Student Planning offerings:
- Counseling core curriculum (counseling lessons)
- Small groups
- Individual meetings with students and their families
- Freshmen family meetings (spring of freshmen year)
- Annual meetings to review student’s academic progress, post-secondary plans and goals
“Responsive services are activities designed to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.”
Please contact your student’s counselor for more information. As part of our responsive services, we can provide referrals to outside resources as mentioned below.
Outside resources are available for programs designed for families who suspect their child is drinking or doing drugs, know their child is using drugs and seeking assistance, or for students who are dealing with consequences from school or the courts for alcohol and drug related offenses. The goal of these programs are to assist and educate students and their families on the disease concept of addiction, family roles, triggers, relapse prevention and overall healthier choices. Contact your teen's counselor or the school social worker for resources.
Indirect Services for Students
“Indirect services are provided on behalf of students as a result of the school counselors’ interactions with others including referrals for additional assistance, consultation, and collaboration with parents, teachers, other educators and community organizations.”
