School Counselors provide important support for full-time students.
The academic plan is the result of a collaborative process between the family, admissions office and school counseling department. The process ensures that students’ specific needs and goals are addressed to help them attain academic success.
The academic plan recommends carefully-tailored placement options based on the student’s talents, skills and educational experiences. The school counseling department reviews the proposed academic plan and makes adjustments or recommendations for course selection to meet the student’s goals.
The Laurel Springs school counseling programs provided for all full-time students in grades 9-12 and includes one-on-one coaching sessions and webinars on subjects such as selecting the right college, standardized test preparation, application assistance, and scholarship or financial aid resources. For high school seniors, the school counselor plays a key role in keeping students focused and on track for graduation. School counselors coordinate with the student’s teachers, write college recommendation letters, and assist in the preparation of college application essays.
