Counseling Services

These therapy sessions, led by the school psychologist, help students through any issues from their personal, family, social, or academic life. Counseling includes evaluation, orientation, intervention, and referral to a specialist if necessary. The objective of counseling is to provide students with the necessary tools and guidance so that their overall quality of life improves; therefore, proactively, and positively improving their academic progress.

Special Accommodations 

Students who require special accommodations for class work and exams can approach the SSC staff who will have a one-on-one counseling session with the student. Once the need is identified, our SSC staff will refer the student to our school psychologist and medical services to get a professional diagnosis. These reports will be communicated to the individual parties that it concerns to facilitate the student’s chances at success.
