Academic & Personal Counseling

Mr. Drain counsels a student.
Students are assigned alphabetically to one of four academic/personal counselors and are called in throughout the year to check on academic progress, and at the request of parents, teachers or the deans.

Individual, parent and family meetings can be also conducted. Students may request a meeting with their counselor at any time by filling out a slip which is available in the counseling area.

Academic Review Board meetings occur after the quarter and semester grading periods. During these meetings, counselors advocate for their students whose grades are below a 2.00 GPA and appropriate remediation services are assigned which may include:

  • Mandatory 7th period tutorial class
  • Regular meetings with teachers
  • Study skills review

Confidentiality in personal counseling is maintained with four exceptions: the student is being abused; the student threatens harm to self; the student threatens harm to another; the student reports elder abuse. Personal problems which require psycho-pharmaceuticals or extensive therapy are referred to outside resources.
