Upper School Guidance

In this final stage before heading off to college and on into the wider world, we’re here to support our students academically and emotionally. We stand by their sides through both the tribulations and triumphs that growing up brings.

Prepared for college, and for life

Apart from college counselors, students in Upper School have access to a full time school counselor that assists them as they navigate the social and emotional terrain of adolescence. This counselor serves as a lead advisor to the entering freshmen class, oversees the implementation of the Advisory Program, and teaches valuable life and study skills. In their sophomore, junior, and senior years, the school counselor plans and delivers class meetings on topics such as healthy relationships, stress management, distracted driving, mindfulness, and substance abuse prevention.

This, along with a growth and understanding in the five foundational elements of the Seven Hills counseling program—self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making—equip our Upper School students for college and life—helping them realize their best selves.
