Social/Emotional Support

  • Counselors and social workers support student social/emotional needs by providing short-term interventions and counseling. We connect students with appropriate outside agencies when more frequent or intensive support is needed. 

Group Counseling

  • Group counseling is a positive, confidential environment for students to process specific concerns with support of peers. Groups: 

    • Provide support 
    • Provide a sounding board 
    • Promote social skills 
    • Teach you about yourself

    Groups meet weekly, during rotating class periods, often for 6-8 weeks. Students are responsible for any class material that he/she may miss during group time.

    Students can be referred to a group by the following: self-referral, parent, teacher, or counselor. For more information on the groups offerred, or to refer your student, please contact his/her school counselor.
