Welcome to the Northport High School Counseling Center
Providing Support and Guidance for Students
At Northport High School, we understand that the teenage years can be challenging. That's why we have a dedicated counseling center to provide students with the support and guidance they need to navigate through this important stage of their lives. Our counseling center is staffed with experienced and compassionate professionals who are committed to helping students thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
Our counseling center offers a wide range of services to meet the diverse needs of our students. Whether they are struggling with academic performance, experiencing personal difficulties, or planning for their future, our counselors are here to help. Here are some of the services we provide:
Our counselors work closely with students to help them develop effective study skills, time management strategies, and organizational techniques. They can also assist with course selection, academic planning, and college preparation. Whether a student needs help with a specific subject or wants to improve their overall academic performance, our counselors are here to provide the necessary support and resources.
We understand that students may face personal challenges that can impact their well-being and academic success. Our counselors offer a safe and confidential space for students to discuss their concerns, explore their emotions, and develop coping strategies. They can provide guidance on a wide range of issues, including stress management, conflict resolution, self-esteem, and relationship difficulties.
College and Career Guidance
Planning for the future can be overwhelming for students. Our counselors are here to help them navigate the college and career exploration process. They can assist with college research, application preparation, financial aid information, and scholarship opportunities. Additionally, our counselors can help students explore potential career paths, set goals, and develop a plan for their future.
Group counseling can be a valuable resource for students who are experiencing similar challenges. Our counseling center offers various group counseling programs that address common issues such as stress management, social skills, and self-esteem. These groups provide students with a supportive and understanding environment to share their experiences, learn from others, and develop new strategies for personal growth.
Parent and Family Support
We believe that a strong partnership between the school and families is essential for student success. Our counseling center offers support and resources for parents and families, including workshops, informational sessions, and individual consultations. We encourage parents and guardians to reach out to our counselors if they have any concerns or questions regarding their child's well-being or academic progress.
In addition to the services provided within our counseling center, our counselors can connect students and families with external resources and support networks in the community. We have established partnerships with local organizations and agencies to ensure that our students have access to the resources they need to thrive.
Confidentiality and Privacy
Confidentiality is of utmost importance in our counseling center. Our counselors adhere to strict ethical guidelines to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of all students. Information shared during counseling sessions is kept confidential, unless there is a risk of harm to the student or others. We encourage students and families to discuss any concerns they may have regarding confidentiality with our counselors.
Accessing Counseling Services
Students can access counseling services by scheduling an appointment with one of our counselors. Appointments can be made in person, by phone, or through our online scheduling system. We strive to accommodate students' schedules and provide timely assistance. Additionally, our counseling center has an open-door policy, allowing students to drop in for support during designated hours.
