Personal Counseling

The Guidance Office works closely with teachers and administration to provide a network of help and resources to aid a struggling student and family.  Counselors are well-equipped and trained to  provide personal counseling through academic difficulties, familial changes, and individual or community crises.  A team of Peer Ministers led by our Campus Ministry, also offers a point of contact in which students find moral support from fellow classmates.  Lastly, the Guidance curriculum is designed to collaborate with existing courses such as Religion classes and Health to incorporate faith-based decision-making skills and knowledge of mental health resources.
