The Counseling Center seeks in every way possible to be a source of help to the whole DeMatha family – students, teachers and parents. Its role is to act as facilitator in the process of education, taking into account the multi-dimensional nature of both the learning and the teaching process.
The ultimate goal of the Counseling Center is to help the student overcome any obstacle that might interfere with his successful education at DeMatha and to prepare him to feel secure about his goals and plans for his post-secondary pursuits.
DeMatha Counselors offer the following types of Counseling:
- Educational and Career Planning
- Standardized testing and Interpretation of Results
Students and parents are encouraged to contact counselors at any time during the school day. Counselors will work with students to develop academic schedules, assist in handling academic or personal challenges, evaluate interests and goals, help with adjustments to school life, and plan for post-secondary education.
The Counseling Center also maintains all student records and official transcripts.
