Services Provided

PALs (Peer Assistance Leaders)

PALs is a student group that seeks to help other students work through difficult circumstances that don't require the services of a counselor. All of our PALs have been trained in crisis intervention, listening skills, and conflict resolution. These students also work as advocates to overcome destructive behaviors. Students wishing to speak with a PAL should contact someone in the Counseling Office for a referral.

Tutoring

Students needing tutoring to be successful in a particular class should contact Ms. Nichols for a referral to an appropriate NHS student.

IEP & 504 Accommodations

Our counselors and faculty work with families and to develop plans for students who qualify for these services.

Academic Counseling

Our counseling staff work with families to develop a four-year plan that meets one's educational goals but also helps develop them into who God is calling them to be. Counselors can also facilitate communication between students and teachers when needed.
