Social Emotional Well-Being

An integral part of counseling is to nurture and strengthen students’ social-emotional well being which serves as the foundation for overall growth and development.

Counselors focus services to help students understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve productive goals, feel and show empathy towards others, maintain and establish positive relationships, and make thoughtful decisions.

La Salle College Preparatory counselors offer an array of support services to students and parents as part of our Healthy Choices curriculum. This series is embedded into all four years of high school and includes lessons, activities, workshops, and guest speakers. Our program highlights are below and services are reimagined each year to fit the current needs of our students and families.


If you have any questions about mental health support, please contact the Director of Counseling.

Ongoing One-on-One Meetings

Counselors meet with students at least twice a semester to check-in on their well being and offer individualized support and referrals as needed. Counselors will connect with the parents and community resources for wraparound care when fitting.

Guest Speakers

Guest speakers are invited each year to present to the student body. Our featured guest speakers have presented on social media and digital safety, mental health and coping skills, domestic violence and personal safety, and anti-bullying.

Social Support Group

Our Learning Specialist facilitates a social support group for students who share similar hardships to learn from and lean on one another. Students are able to share their personal experiences and feelings while gaining positive strategies to cope with the challenges they face. The Social Support Group available in the past have included Grief & Loss and Anxiety Management.
