Parents and guardians start talking with their children about their futures and goals at an early age, and our K-8 Counselors can help with these conversations and plans by empowering students to become successful and well prepared for Middle and Upper Schools. Collaborating with teachers and families, these counselors address the academic, personal, and social needs of those enrolled in our Lower and Middle Schools. They also help our students develop leadership, time-management, and decision-making skills for online learning and beyond. Meet our K-8 Counselors who help even our youngest students become self-advocates and go-getters.
