Individual Counseling

 Counselors meet with students in a one-on-one capacity when the student or an adult requests a meeting. These meetings are confidential (unless safety is a concern) and are to discuss issues such as academics, problem solving, goal setting, personal problems affecting school and other issues that may be impacting learning. Counseling sessions are generally brief but a counselor may make a referral to on-going counseling if necessary.
