The School Counseling Department provides a Biblically-based, comprehensive program to assist all students and their families in academic, spiritual, emotional/social, and career development. Using the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) guidelines as a framework, school counselors will partner with educators, families, and the community to assist students in maximizing their potential as productive citizens who glorify God in all they do.
As an extension of the School Counseling office, Advisory for students in 6th-12th grade is established to assist in their growth and development by constructing meaningful educational plans in congruence with their life- 24 calling. Each student is assigned a faculty member who will serve as a mentor for the duration of the student’s middle and high school years. Faculty serve as mentors to provide support by guiding and monitoring each student’s academic and social progress.
The advisor role is integral to each student’s success, as it gives an additional platform for faculty to partner with families by gaining insight and communicating each student’s concerns, interests, and abilities. Through these groups, faculty seek to formulate lasting authentic relationships that lead to student success and foster a strong sense of community. Each advisory group is divided by grade level and consists of 7-10 students per group that meets for 40 minutes once a week.
