What does School Counseling look like at the High School level?

The high school years are characterized by youthful enthusiasm and tremendous energy. Throughout these four years students take on great responsibilities and make important decisions of potentially long-lasting impact. University and career exploration and ultimately, the college application process are central themes during these years. Frank provides this support and develops each student’s full potential by:

  • providing orientation assistance to new students and families;
  • providing transition services to departing students and families;
  • college and career lessons and guidance for all HS students;
  • college application assistance to 12th-grade students;
  • facilitating the new Student Buddy Program;
  • monitoring academic progress;
  • supporting social and emotional growth;
  • working collaboratively with parents, teachers, and administrators in order to help foster social, emotional, cognitive, and ethical development;
  • providing crisis intervention when needed;
  • engaging in individual and group counseling;
  • providing outside referrals when required;
  • monitoring social and emotional adaptation of students in general;
  • mediating conflicts that arise in order to restore relationships;
  • parent workshops and book clubs on various areas of child development;
  • psycho-educational assessment for students who demonstrate learning and/or emotional/behavioral issues
