Counseling and College Advising
Saint Joe Counselors provide individual and small group counseling; crisis intervention; peer relationships and effective social skills development; problem-solving, decision-making, and conflict resolution; coping strategies; substance abuse education and intervention; multicultural/diversity awareness; resource referrals; and advocacy for students.
Academic Planning and College Advising
Additionally, counselors collaborate with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community to ensure students receive appropriate academic planning. This planning includes goal-setting and decision-making in developing four-year plans as freshmen; post-secondary planning and application process via in-classroom presentations as well as individualized planning; education in self-assessment (learning how to identify strengths and weaknesses); college exploration and career awareness; understanding of organizational, study, and test-taking skills; and development of resumes. We utilize Scoir as a College planning tool.
We love working with our students! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
