Counseling Office

Meet the Department:

The Counseling Department provides support to students in recognizing their aptitudes and developing their unique abilities as they relate to college and career paths, helps students realize their academic and personal goals and potential, and assists students in finding and ultimately enrolling in a school that best fits their interests, talents and life-goals. The College Counseling department not only focuses on college counseling, but also career counseling, personal counseling and academic counseling.

The Counseling team works to monitor individual academic progress and goals, offers guidance during the college application process, and provides standardized testing opportunities.  In the safety of a confidential setting, services also may include individual and family counseling, crisis intervention and referrals to, and collaboration with community resources.  Additional programs include orientation meetings for students and parents, educational parent nights and class level parent support programs.  Junior and Senior College Nights, Financial Aid Information sessions and the Case Studies and College Fair Night are also available for upperclassmen and parents.

Our Resource Specialist provides ongoing support for students with documented learning differences by helping students understand their accommodations that will assist them as they progress through the St. Vincent’s curriculum and into their post high school endeavors.  All students are supported in learning self-advocacy skills and accessing resources to maximize their success.

Counseling related activities will comply with confidentiality ethics except when reporting is mandated by law (eg. imminent danger to self or others, child abuse or neglect).  The Counseling Department is available at any time to address your questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress and development.
