The goal of counseling at New Story Schools is to enhance the student’s participation in their educational program and improve their ability to function in social, emotional, and behavioral capacities. A school counselor uses assessment, group or individual counseling, and mediation to assist students with academic, social, personal, and career development. School counselors function as part of the multi-disciplinary team and help coordinate efforts that support a student's academic success.
New Story Schools Counselors work with students in areas of:
- Developing self-awareness
- Learning and practice conflict resolution
- Gaining independence and responsibility
- Accepting differences in others
- Issues at home
- Academic struggles
- Counselors may refer to resources outside of the school setting as needed
