Student Counselor

The High School Student Counselor’s goal is to implement a comprehensive and proactive school counseling program that seeks to promote and enhance student learning and well-being.

The counselor is available to provide services to students, parents, school staff, and the community through a number of delivery methods including the implementation of a school guidance/advisory curriculum, individual student planning, responsive services, and system support.

By promoting and incorporating balanced ideas around leadership, advocacy and collaboration, the school counseling program will seek to promote equity and access to opportunities that best support students through the rigorous educational experience that is a part of attending Le Jardin Academy.
