Student Wellness

High school is a time of personal, social, academic and emotional growth.

To help students build resilience, as well as time management and coping techniques, our counseling department offers workshops, tools and advice to students as they find their authentic selves and strengthen their social-emotional skills. Programming emphasizes the practice and patience needed to help students learn to prioritize their well-being and manage their busy lives.
