Student Assistance Program
In partnership with Loudoun County Mental Health and Loudoun County Public Schools, the School Counseling Department provides the services of a mental health therapist, a school psychologist and a school social worker. Services include assessments and individual and group counseling.
Student Support Team (SST)
Counselors meet regularly with administrators to review the progress of students whose attendance, behavior or personal issues warrant additional support for academic success. The team has a list of resources and will provide appropriate interventions for students in need of assistance.
Adult leaders, including school counselors and social workers facilitate weekly counseling groups to encourage discussion and exploration of a variety of social/emotional issues. The goal is to invite participants to support each other constructively and topics addressed include study skills, grief, family dynamics, self esteem issues, peer pressure, stress management and pre-recovery from substance abuse. Parental permission is required for participation.
Support for Special Populations
Counselors serve students involved with the SAFE (Students in an Alternative, Focused Environment), Hispanic Outreach, Top Ten (African American males), Sisters (African American females) and International Team. Counselors also participate in IEP, Child Study and Clinical Team meetings.
