Last names P-Z
The La Salle School Counseling Department includes three counselors and a part-time psychologist, speech pathologist and special education tutor. The primary role of the counselor is to help each student reach his highest potential. All students are assigned to one of our highly skilled school counselors. The student and counselor work collaboratively to ensure student success in all areas.
Counselors see each of their assigned students during the school year through individual counseling sessions and/or group meetings. Additionally, students keep the same counselor for all four years. The counseling staff utilizes Naviance, a career and college exploration database, to assist them with their meetings. Students are highly encouraged to log into Naviance and utilize the tools within Naviance to help them with their post-secondary decision.
La Salle High School is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and endorses the association's Statement of Principles of Good Practice.
Mental Health survey
The La Salle High School Counseling Department offers your son, academic, college/career, and emotional support in a variety of ways. This includes collaboration and consultation with teachers and staff, individual check-ins on an as needed basis, and classroom guidance lessons. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the counseling department is looking to provide increased support by offering a school-wide mental health needs assessment and counseling groups for the 2021-2022 school year. The mental health needs assessment will be distributed and collected electronically during Flex bell on September 30th.
The results of the mental health needs assessment will be confidential and will only be used by the La Salle High School Counseling Department to better support your son. Based on the information we are able to gather, we will invite students to participate in counseling groups as an extra layer of support. Counseling groups are made up of a small number of students led by a trained mental health professional with a focus on a specific topic. Counseling groups can be effective by helping to reinforce skills and encourage learning without the intimidation of a large group setting.
We emphasize that groups are for everyone, and participating does not necessarily indicate a problem. We believe that all students can learn from and provide support for each other.
