Children excel in a learning environment that promotes happiness, acceptance, and support. Because of this, Holy Rosary has contracted with Catholic Charities to provide free classroom workshops, group counseling, and limited individual or family counseling. Since 1976, the School Counseling Program at Catholic Charities has helped thousands of students by enhancing their ability to function in the school environment and helping them cope with issues that may be disrupting their personal or family life.
Throughout the school year, your children will have the opportunity to learn about feelings, foster self-esteem and become empowered to manage day-to-day stresses and frustrations through classroom workshops, small groups and limited individual and family sessions. Your school counselor will also be available to parents in a professional and confidential capacity regarding needed community resources and referrals for their child or family.
One of the specific programs offered at school is Safe @ Last, the personal safety curriculum mandated by the Catholic Schools Office to teach students how to handle unsafe situations. The counselor also provides other classroom workshops and small groups on requested topics.
