The professional school counselor is a certified educator who addresses the needs of students comprehensively through the implementation of a developmental school counseling program. School counselors work with all students, including those who are considered "at-risk." They are specialists in the human behavior and relationships and provide assistance to students through three primary interventions: individual counseling, consultation, and coordination.
Large Group Guidance is a planned, developmental program of guidance activities designed to foster student's academic, career, and personal/social development. It is provided for all students through a collaborative effort by counselors and teachers at each individual day school. Please check each day school website for dates and times.
Consultation is a collaborative partnership in which the counselor works with parents, students, teachers, and administrators in order to plan and implement strategies to help students be successful in the education system.
Coordination is a leadership process in which the counselor helps organize, manage, and evaluate the School Counseling Program. The counselor assists parents in obtaining needed services for their children through student enrollment, transcripts and records, grades, and a possible referral back to the day school.
