School Counseling

Compassion, Encouragement and Personal Connections


In a supportive and nurturing environment, our guidance counselors are available to assist students with any area of student life. From study suggestions and test score interpretations to help with home, school and social concerns, we’re here to meet student needs and answer questions of all types.


Vision


The vision of our guidance and counseling program is to provide comprehensive developmental services and support to help our students achieve their fullest potential academically, socially and emotionally. The GWA counseling program promotes students’ self-worth and empowers them to make positive choices for themselves and their futures.

In partnership with our teachers, administration and parents, our counselors work to ensure that our services fully align with the school’s mission.


Resources


Guidance and counseling services are offered for every student at GWA, K4 through 12th grade. Our school counselors are available to help students with personal, social, academic and career development through the following methods:


Our counselors teach skills in test-taking, stress management, time management, leadership, decision making, coping, communication and positive peer relationships.


We guide students in improving academic skills, setting goals, promoting responsibility, and expanding career awareness and exploration.


We also provide general support to GWA students and families and can provide resources for community agencies.

 

We offer individual and group sessions, and our counselors are also fully equipped to address crisis response situations. At all levels, our counselors hold master’s degrees in the mental health field.


Contact


The middle and upper school guidance office is located in the main campus building. The lower school guidance office is located in the lower school administration building. Parents are always welcome to request a meeting by contacting our counseling offices.
