SM Counseling Department

The SM Counseling Department supports our students and families through all four years at SMCHS. As an incoming freshman, SM students are assigned a counselor who will be their support and advisor academically, personally, and manage the college preparatory and application process.  Through our charism, Caritas Christi – the love of Christ, counselors seek to encourage a positive sense of self-worth, self-discipline, personal responsibility, successful interpersonal relationships, commitment to Gospel values, and a desire to contribute positively to both the global community and the immediate society in which they live. Through supporting each student to learn about their individuality and specific aspirations, the college process can be a positive and rewarding experience.

The SM Counseling Department provides services to all students that go beyond academic and college advising. Our counselors hold Masters in Counseling and counseling credentials, as well as specialized training in Youth Mental Health First Aid.

Academic pressures, relationship strains, self-esteem struggles, negative social media encounters, to name a few, can all be part of the high school experience. SM counselors are here to be a trusted adult presence in helping teens navigate through these various issues, and listening is what counselors do best.

SM counselors are dedicated to informal check-in’s with students, being involved in crisis intervention, providing outside counseling referrals, collaborating with our SM school psychologist and teachers to best serve students’ individual needs, encouraging students to be self-advocates, and responding to urgent needs of all students. Teachers, parents, and friends can also help in identifying students that need help by notifying a counselor.

The SM Counseling Department has an open-door policy. Students are welcome to come to the counselors with any questions or concerns that they might have throughout the school day.
