How to Connect with Your Counselor

Students have the opportunity to meet with their counselors (Personal/Academic Counselor and College Counselor) in two ways:

Students are always encouraged to request appointments as needed by visiting the Counseling Center on the 2nd floor to request an appointment either in two ways:

  1. In person (appointment slips are available in the center)
  2. Email your counselor

Please note:  even in the age of advanced technology, counselors may take up to 48 hours to respond to an appointment request.  Overall, counselors do their best to maintain a 24 hour response to time.

When students meet with their personal/academic counselor or college counselor, all conversations are considered confidential. Confidentiality can not be maintained if the student is in imminent danger includes being harmed, harming self or others, or when legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed [American School Counselor Association (ASCA) code of ethics].  Our primary obligation to our students is recognizing isuses of personal safety that need to be addressed. While students are encouraged to discuss any topic of question or concern with their counselors, it is important to note that counselors do not provide therapy for students and families, but will support the needs of students through counseling meetings and provide resources for therapeutic intervention as needed.
