The school employs a full-time, professional school counselor for the purpose of working with students and families in processing various emotional, spiritual, academic or social concerns that may be brought up during their time at school.
Students and faculty alike have an easily accessible, secure online referral, whereby a student can meet with the school counselor in The Wellness Center office located on the main floor of Johnston Hall. We offer a wide range of services for all students—both boarding and day students—including individual counseling, group support, and referrals to services in our community with our affiliates. Should more extensive or longer-term counseling be needed, the school counselor coordinates the referral to an appropriate outside professional and arranges for transportation to the practitioner’s office.
The school counselor adheres to a policy of confidentiality in all dealings with persons who seek help, though safety concerns provide an exception to such a policy. When issues regarding safety arise, the confidentiality policy will acquiesce to the safety of the student.
