Counseling Corner

Welcome to the Counseling Corner of STEAM High School! I am excited as we embark upon the inaugural year of STEAM! The College and Career Counseling Department is an integral part of the educational program at STEAM Academy. Our counseling professional nurtures students in their academic, emotional and social development.  A proactive, developmental approach is used to assist students in making wise decisions personally, academically and vocationally. Students are assisted in choosing a balanced program of studies, understanding themselves, and selecting the courses required for college admission or career placements. 

 

Our structured college and career counseling is deliberately focused on planning for continuing education in a college or university or career path best suited for the student's strengths and goals. The counselor also provides assistance in exploring college and career choices, submitting college applications, and pursuing scholarship options. 

 

Discussion with a teacher or a counselor will help students solve many problems that may confront them during their years of high school life. 

The counselor provides personalized attention to our students in these areas:

 

  • Academic planning/ counseling
  • Career planning/ assistance
  • Personal counseling and referrals
  • College selection and application assistance
  • Scholarship assistance
  • Standardized Testing
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Conflict Resolution /Mediation
  • Wellness Counseling
