School Counseling

The School Counseling Department provides student services to the St. Xavier High School community. The responsibility of the school counselors is to assist students with their educational, cognitive, emotional, and social development.

The school counselors are professionally trained educators who work in the best interest of each student. A School Psychologist works in conjunction with the counselors to assist with individual problem assessment, intervention, and referral to outside intervention.

Upon enrollment at St. Xavier, each student is assigned to a school counselor whom he may consult for any academic, psycho-social, or career concerns. The school counselors monitor progress reports and failures, and see students at the request of teachers, parents, or students themselves. Professional guidelines of confidentiality are maintained in student-counselor contacts.
