Academic and Guidance Counseling
Guidance and academic services are overseen by the directors of the Upper and Middle Schools. The guidance department provides personal, academic and college counseling, as well as some vocational counseling. Since the overwhelming majority of students matriculate to college, more emphasis is placed on college counseling.
The Student/counselor ratio is 570/4 for all grades, 6-12.
A full-time college counselor works with all 9th and 10th grade students; another full-time college counselor meets with 11th and 12th grade students.
The Upper School guidance counselor is responsible for assisting students with personal as well as academic issues, as is the Middle School counselor.
The guidance and counseling department strives to assist students in becoming self-directed and goal-oriented, in solving personal problems, and in making wise choices in their present lives, as well as thoughtful decisions concerning their future plans.
