Overview

Student services is a part of Advent’s effort to ensure that students are strengthened to meet high expectations by supporting and encouraging each child to strive for his or her personal best. Through collaboration with parents, teachers and other resources, our environment fosters each student’s ability to flourish academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. Advent will provide responsive services to our community through personal counseling, crisis counseling, problem solving or consultation. Each concern is treated individually and may result in a referral to an outside resource. Responsive services will be carried out through individual, small group, or whole group counseling. To best support each family, students will be monitored by the counselor to assist in student success.

The guidance curriculum is comprehensive and topics are chosen to meet the needs of the students and school. The Student Services Program includes the following services:
  • Assist in behavioral and academic success
  • Observe students in the classroom and other settings as needed
  • Provide consultation to teachers, parents and administrators
  • Provide referral assistance when appropriate
  • Coordinate standardized assessments
  • Coordinate social-emotional classroom lessons
  • Analyze data to identify strengths, weaknesses, and students’ needs
  • Provide individual counseling
  • Provide small group instruction and guidance lessons
  • Assist students in determining the best high school to meet their individual needs
