The Counseling Department is here to serve the students. It is our hope that students and parents utilize the services available: individual counseling; college information; scholarship and career information; scheduling and course planning.
Bishop O’Gorman Catholic Schools provides a comprehensive counseling program to students and employs licensed school counselors at all school sites. School counselors work with all students to address emotional, behavioral and academic concerns as well as to provide counseling for developmental concerns such as friendships, conflicts, following directions, anger management, respectful communication, study and organization skills.
As part of the comprehensive counseling program the school counselor works with all students in the school. Counselors play a significant role in identifying and referring students for mental health and academic evaluations in partnership with parents and teachers. If the counselor determines your child would benefit from regular meetings, parent permission will be obtained.
Counseling programs at each school include a wide array of both preventive and social skills education. Counselors meet with the full class, small groups of students, or individually to address specific topics, offering a custom program based on needs. Visits with the counselor are not considered disciplinary action.
