Our Supportive Services
SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING (SEL):
Students will have the opportunity to meet with our Creative Counselor regularly to learn SEL through Character-Building and Arts programs. Students will be taught how to manage their emotions, critically think, problem solve, and work collaboratively with their peers. Research has proven that social and emotional learning is crucial for youth of all ages and yields positive results for all stakeholders. Today’s students face various obstacles beyond the classroom as they continue to develop the 5 Core SEL Competencies: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Integrating SEL into classrooms as early as possible will give our educators effective ways to connect with students through meaningful conversations that can improve behavior, increase student success, and inspire learning that will last a lifetime.
Students will have the opportunity to meet with a pastoral counselor to develop skills to resolve emotional problems such as inappropriate affect, emotional dysregulation, anger, conflict resolution, anxiety, and depression. Special focus will be given to the need for individuals to have their basic needs met. The need to matter, to belong, be safe, feel worthy, be loved, and express ones-self openly.
