Counseling is offered to students through self-referral, teacher-referral, or parent-referral. Students may utilize this service to obtain support around a number of personal issues, such as academic stress, social issues, adjustment issues, & bereavement, and a solution-focused approach is utilized. Community resources are also provided for those students who require more comprehensive interventions. Collaboration with teachers, doctors, and/or learning specialists also occurs when necessary to ensure continuity of support within the academic environment.
In an effort to develop deeper relationships with the HRA parents, Lisa Thatcher offers several Parent Coffees throughout the school year. Discussions are based on current literature addressing the developmental lives of teens and pre-teens. The “coffees” are a wonderful way for parents to meet one another and to share insights into the changing lives of their children.
