Consistent with Cornelia Connellys core principles, the Counseling Department at Holy Child holds the tenets of care and trust at the center of the counseling program. Holy Childs comprehensive counseling program allows multiple opportunities for students to connect with their counselors, working together responsively as needs arise as well as preemptively to provide tools and skills for life.

 

Counseling at Holy Child promotes the academic, social, and emotional well-being of all of our students by employing the ASCA (American School Counselor Association) National Model, targeting ASCAs Mindsets and Behaviors. Counselors work with students individually, in groups, and through guidance lessons, using a solution-focused, strengths-based approach. In addition, the low student-to-counselor ratio ensures that counselors connect meaningfully with their students and support their growth as unique individuals. At the core of the departments philosophy is the understanding that social and emotional health lead to academic and personal success.
