Counseling allows a student to express various concerns affecting his or her life both within and outside of school. It seeks to establish a supportive connection in which the counselor collaborates with the particular student to facilitate adjustment and progress in many parts of his life.
The counselors assist students, parents, and the faculty in developing solutions to an identified concern by providing adept advice and tapping their strengths, potentials, and available resources that can help improve their situation.
Psychological tests are made available for students to help them become more aware of their strengths and areas for improvement. Students may also gain insights from the test results that can guide their decisions and actions.
