Classroom Guidance Lessons
Classroom guidance lessons help students examine their lives and make lasting changes to achieve the maximum benefit from their talents and abilities. Students develop a realistic and Biblical concept of self, emotions, personal responsibility, communication, social skills, and personal safety skills. Children learn to handle social situations before they occur.
Whether students need help navigating social interactions or developing organizational skills and more, small group guidance assists students with specific situations that occur during the school day. Small groups meet during the school day and may vary in duration depending student need.
School guidance counselors are available to help students dealing with difficult circumstances, including: anxiety, loss, and how to communicate their needs to others. The goal of individual counseling is to help students with these circumstances within a few visits. If a student’s needs are beyond the school counselor's expertise, then a referral to someone who can assist may be made.
There are many helpful community resources that benefit students and their families outside of the school setting, including family therapists who have a biblical approach and other professionals who assist individuals with various needs. For more information about community resources contact the school guidance counselor.
