The St. Thomas Aquinas School Counseling Department provides guidance and counseling services to all students. As a Catholic, college prep school, two of our goals are to be able to meet the recurrent and spontaneous needs of students, while helping them form their vision for future aspirations.
School counselors facilitate communication among students, their parents, teachers, and any college or community resource that may assist in furthering a student’s growth. St. Thomas Aquinas school counselors follow a general policy of confidentiality with students, except where the welfare of the student or others comes into question. School counselors welcome students to drop in or make appointments.
In addition to keeping their pulse on each child’s overall transition into high school and the subsequent four-year journey, our School Counselors take a very interactive and comprehensive approach to college counseling beginning in grade 9. Grade level meetings with students assist STA students in getting an early start in the college planning process.
