The school counselors work individually with students to guide them through the Jesuit ideals of self-understanding, discovering gifts through bravery and innovation, and engaging with others through a positive attitude and goal-centered action.
Students and their parents are encouraged to utilize SLUH’s school counselors to address concerns or challenges in their personal, social, or academic lives. The counseling staff will listen, advise, and refer students and their families to other professional resources if necessary.
The school counselors will also help your son find opportunities both inside and outside of school to develop his interests and gifts so he can continue to grow and reach his personal goals.
Your son will meet with his school counselor twice a year (counselors are available for additional individual meetings by student request) as well as in group settings to discuss:
- Adjusting to academic rigor as high school progresses
- Learning strategies for academic success
- Goal setting
- Exploring careers and interests through classes, activities, clubs, and summer programs
- Taking career assessments
- Class scheduling with graduation and college in mind
- Going through life transitions
- Staying safe
- Making big decisions
- Personal Counseling
- Crisis Counseling
All SLUH school counselors have college counseling experience and incorporate this knowledge into the work of preparing students for their social, emotional, and academic journey into college and for life beyond.
