Counseling is a resource for students who seek some resolution to personal difficulties they might encounter during the school year. Though students will often explore their concerns in conversations with advisers, teachers or coaches they may prefer to talk with a professional counselor. Schiller’s counseling Department, works closely with the Health Center staff. In addition to the day-to-day faculty support that students receive at School, Schiller has dedicated counselors and learning specialists to aid students in both learning differences and emotional needs. This also affords schillerites the opportunity to explore advanced work by enhancing the differentiation already offered in classrooms in every division.
The Counseling Department has two primary goals :-
- To provide support and counseling to students.
- To serve as a resource for parents, faculty and staff.
The counseling program offers resources to students, parents, and teachers to encourage healthy academic, career, and social/emotional development in all students. The counseling program also teaches students positive mindsets and behaviors through classroom guidance, small group counseling, and individual counseling. The counselor supports parents and teachers during conferences while maintaining the role of student advocate.
Faculty and parents may refer students for small group and individual counseling.
College Prep (Fly-High Programme)
Success can be defined in many ways. We are proud of the countless ways that Schillerites go on to shine. Choosing a college is a complex and challenging task for students and their families. At Schiller, FLY HIGH PROGRAMME conducts college counseling process which begins with the distributing of our very comprehensive CAREER LOOK BOOK and initial student conferences. We take the entire junior class to the college fairs in the area, meet with students and parents in small group and one-to-one sessions. Together, we assess student interests, discuss career goals, weigh the importance of factors such as location, cost, size, and extra-curricular activities, and gain a sense of the range of selectivity a Schillerite should have in mind for college search.
We want to establish a strong foundation for success in whatever a student wishes to pursue Schillerites and their families have the advantage of a FLY HIGH PROGRAMME which is staffed with a team of expert educators and counselors to guide them. College counselors at Schiller will meet students’ needs academically and provide an appropriate environment for continuing personal and intellectual growth. What is unique at Schiller is that our counselors teaches one class and also coaches, an interpretation of our time-honored teacher-coach-advisor model. Throughout the year in the Upper classes, our counselors aim to nurture and expand their relationship with both the child and the parent. We are committed to the ideal of making lifelong learners of our students, and, as such, Schiller graduates become successful undergraduates. We offer informed advice to Schillerites and their parents at every stage in the transition from Skiff Mountain to the future, and we value the relationships we establish with families in the course of our counseling efforts.
