To best position students for the future, we offer:
School and personal guidance that is SPECIALIZED
. Counselors meet with students individually at least once per quarter to refine personal goals, measure academic progress, and plan for college. At Justin-Siena we recognize that each student will take a unique path towards graduation; thus, our approach considers the needs, strengths, and areas of growth of the individual student in planning for the future.COMPREHENSIVE
school and college planning. Each quarter, counselors push in to advisory sessions to deliver needs-based guidance. Our first freshman advisory sessions, for example, will focus on the needs of a 9th grader transitioning to high school: managing a schedule with increased rigor, coping with shifting peer groups, and getting connected through activities on and off campus. Our sophomore, junior, and senior advisory push-ins are increasingly geared towards college planning: creating personal testing calendars for the SAT and ACT, developing college lists on Naviance, building an effective resume, and maximizing summer and co-curricular experiences to augment college applications.HIGHLY QUALIFIED
and dedicated school counselors. Our commitment to providing specialized academic and personal counseling includes three full-time school counselors, two full-time college counselors, and two student support counselors, all of whom have Master’s degrees and are credentialed in counseling. Our philosophy is to never stop learning; to that end, our counselors enrolled in the Columbia University’s inaugural college counseling course to connect with counselors from across the United States and to gain valuable insights on assisting our students find their best-fit college.
