Norfolk Collegiate has two counselors dedicated dedicated to helping our students find success in all aspects of their school experience.
Academic and developmental support is provided through a variety of age-appropriate programs and support services, including the Learning Resource Program (Kindergarten though Grade 12) and the Advisory Program (Grades 6-12).
Counselors facilitate character development through programs promoting integrity, honesty, responsibility, citizenship, school involvement, leadership, academic integrity and multicultural awareness and understanding of diversity. Physical and emotional development is fostered through classroom visits, individual and small group counseling, assemblies, guest speakers and performers, and programs that focus on self-esteem, wellness and alcohol and drug education.
In the middle and upper school, these topics are further explored through regularly scheduled advisory group meetings. Counselors visit classes regularly and meet with students individually to establish academic and personal goals. In the middle and upper schools, counselors also work with students in planning appropriate course selections.
