School Counseling Services

St. Elizabeth School Counseling

Our school counselors provide comprehensive services to promote academic growth, social/emotional well-being, and readiness for college and career. The school counselors also provide education and information to support student mental health and equipped to provide appropriate resources and referrals if needed. The counseling department has an open-door policy, and students are encouraged to visit as needed. Effective counseling relies on building trust and consistency in the counselor/student relationship, therefore students are assigned counselors who remain with them from freshman year through graduation. 

Some functions of the School Counseling Department include:

  • Classroom lessons and seminars
  • Individual meetings with each student
  • Small-group/peer interventions
  • Whole-school assemblies for students, staff, and parents
  • Academic planning and course scheduling
  • Short-term counseling, information, and resources to support mental health
  • Consultation with teachers, parents, staff, and outside agencies
  • Administering PSAT and AP exams
  • Facilitating college and career research, exploration, and development 
  • Managing the college application process 
  • Crisis response
  • Interpreting Education/Psychological evaluations and developing learning profiles for students with identified needs

We recognize the diversity in individual learning styles and make it a priority to empower students to become self-sufficient, successful learners.
