Collegiate American School is committed to engaging and supporting all students in learning. This is shown by the counselor's efforts to create a learning environment that promotes student autonomy, interaction, competence and choice. A school counselor is aware of the diverse needs of students and uses all possible resources including making reasonable accommodations for the student's individual cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs. As an educator, the school counselor believes that every student can learn and grow.
The role of a school counselor consists of many different daily activities. Our job is to work closely with teachers, school administrators and other professionals to provide students with the best possible resources and services. In addition to individual and group counseling, counselors work closely with the teachers to present classroom guidance lessons that focus on character education, peer relationships, social skills, decision making, care for self and others, problem solving and an understanding for self and others.
