Where Support Comes Full Circle

Student Services

Our Student Services program is designed to provide individualized counseling and ongoing learning support. Its scope of service includes academic, college and career, personal, peer, assessment/referral, and college financial aid in addition to supporting those with disabilities and in need of accommodations.

School counselors utilize their extensive experience and nurturing nature to build relationships with students that are based on mutual trust and confidentiality. They encourage and facilitate the exploration of self, development of problem-solving and interpersonal skills, acceptance of personal responsibility, and the development of effective educational and career planning perspectives.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to contact Springdale counselors whenever assistance is needed.

Counselors may advocate for student needs, meet with students and faculty, schedule parent-teacher meetings, and make referrals for outside services. They also join with learning specialists and other outside professionals to collaborate with faculty advisors, the Director of Curriculum, the Deputy Head of School, and the school nurse to discuss and determine any appropriate actions that support a student’s well-being and academic growth.

We Support With:

Counselors recognize and respect the individuality of each student, taking into account their aptitudes, attitudes, interests, and achievements, and incorporating those insights into the counseling relationship. They may implement individualized plans based on a student’s needs, provide relevant information to faculty and assist students in understanding the impact their academic and school experiences can have on future educational opportunities and career options.

Springdale counselors assist students in developing a sense of awareness and self-worth, emphasizing self-exploration and securing decision-making and goal-setting skills needed for educational advancement. They understand and are sensitive to the functional role of the student within the context of school, family and the community. Our counselors support students and their families in addressing any concerns while simultaneously working with teachers, educators and relevant specialists to address pertinent issues and promote student growth.

Springdale students meet regularly in small advisory groups led by faculty members. The advisory agenda addresses academic success, emotional wellbeing, college and career planning and various other topics. In both group and individual sessions, advisors guide discussions, develop collaborative relationships, review academic performances and skills, recommend strategies for academic success, assess career interests and promote emotional and social wellness.
