Upper School Guidance
Arborbrook provides personal academic advising for students from the beginning of their experience at Arborbrook through graduation. The counselor will provide assistance in selecting classes and will help the student stay on track to meet graduation requirements.
Freshmen meet with the counselor as a group twice a year. Then, beginning in Sophomore year, students meet individually with the counselor every year to plan and prepare for their academic journey beyond high school. Junior year, students are required to take Junior Seminar which is a classed dedicated to assess personality, strengths and values, explore career options, learn how to search for and prepare for college, write a resume and more! College Night is also held in the fall for Juniors and their parents to prepare for the college admissions process.
One of the roles of the school psychologist is to provide counseling services from a biblical perspective. Through these services, we hope to offer a greater level of care to students needing emotional support. Students are encouraged to utilize this resource during appropriate times (e.g., lunch, study hall). A student may also schedule an individual appointment with the school psychologist to talk about emotional, spiritual, academic or social concerns in a confidential setting. If ongoing counseling services are required, the school psychologist may consult with parents regarding mental health resources outside of the school.
