Counseling & Learning Resources

Supporting intellectual, social, and emotional development as students grow “from curiosity to wisdom.”
The Counseling and Learning Resources Office promotes and supports the social and emotional growth of students in prekindergarten through twelfth grade. Each division is staffed with a counselor and learning specialist who share a passion for assisting students in their intellectual, social, and emotional development as they grow “from curiosity to wisdom.”

Our office serves as a resource to students, teachers, and parents. Whether working one-on-one or in a group setting, our goal is to promote student well-being through the development of self-awareness, independence, coping skills, self-advocacy, and resiliency. Our collaboration with parents and teachers is essential in order to create the best learning environment for our students.

Throughout each school year we offer parent information meetings on a variety of timely topics related to parenting and educating children in today’s world.
