Why would a student see a school counselor or Behavioral Interventionist?

  1. Academic/Educational Counseling – Students sometimes have academic problems in areas including study habits, expectations, time management, organizational skills, and the level of the curriculum.  A counselor may assist students in exploring solutions to these and other academic problems.
  2. Career/Vocational CounselingFrom K-12 grade it’s important to explore, engage and empower students about what they enjoy in life. This will help guide them in their future plans. As a school counselor, along with teachers and other staff, we will engage your students in exploring different careers, colleges, vocational opportunities and much more to help them feel empowered and ready for the future.
  3. Personal/Social Counseling – Can assist students to develop skills to interact more effectively with others, identify personal values, talents and interests and transition into and out of elementary to middle school and from middle school to high school. The counselor will also provide support and assistance to students and families in crisis and can provide referrals to outside agencies for more extensive assistance including counseling, evaluations or treatment.

If your student needs to see the counselor, their teacher can fill out the referral form, or you as the parent/guardian and student can fill out the Check-In form below.
