Student Life / Counseling

Freshman Counseling

Freshman counseling & guidance is a student-centered program that helps students complete a successful transition to high school academically, spiritually and socially. Through reflection, individual/group discussion, and teambuilding, students are encouraged to explore and experience growth in their personal values, learning styles, communication, learning preferences, discernment and leadership skills. Through weekly small group sessions, students will be given the chance to reflect, evaluate and create an action plan to prepare for a variety of real life situations. Issues in regard to respecting self and others, as well as acceptance and inclusion, are discussed. All students develop ongoing self-improvement plans through activities and discussions that include goal setting and student-teacher interaction. Development of self-advocacy skills and the outcomes associated with cause/effect and risk/reward relationships are often best explored in the safety and comfort of a small group setting. Making good decisoions and problem-solving is explored throughout the year. Guidance also assists students in making extracurricular choices, some of which include ministry activities, athletic options, leadership development, academic competitions and the performing arts.
