School Counseling Department

Counselors serve as a resource to students, teachers, advisors, and parents. Whether working one-to-one or in a group setting, our goal is to promote student well-being and to boost achievement through the development of self-awareness, coping skills, resilience, self-advocacy and planning skills.  
Justin-Siena counselors help students discover and maximize
their academic and social strengths so that they are
prepared for college and life beyond high school.

Our Approach

To best position students for the future, we offer:

SPECIALIZED and PERSONALIZED guidance. Counselors meet with students individually at least once per quarter to refine personal goals, measure academic progress, plan for college, and check social and emotional well-being. 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 their future. While counselors meet with students regularly, students may request to meet with their counselor at any time.
COMPREHENSIVE school and college planning. Each quarter, counselors deliver needs-based guidance in advisory sessions. Topics include healthy relationships, time management, depression and anxiety, study skills, and finals preparation.  All of our students receive college testing information and PSAT prep, as well as assistance with developing college lists on SCOIR, building an effective resume, and maximizing summer and co-curricular experiences to augment college applications.
HIGHLY QUALIFIED and dedicated school counselors. Justin-Siena’s commitment to providing specialized academic and personal counseling includes three full-time school counselors, two full-time college counselors, and a student support counselor, all of whom have Master’s degrees and are credentialed in counseling. 

Family Communication

Counselors schedule grade-level family meetings at the beginning of the school year. Our “Coffee with the Counselors” sessions introduce parents to the freshman, sophomore, and junior years of high school with an overview of important dates, information about creating the best home learning environment possible, and step-by-step guides for parents to assist their students in college search and selection.
In spring of Sophomore year, parents are invited to sophomore family counseling meetings, which include individualized planning for junior and senior years, an assessment of academic progress and trajectory, and an analysis of college options.
