Within each House at Lincoln-Sudbury, two school guidance counselors provide academic and emotional support to students throughout their four years, culminating with guidance on the college admissions process, post-secondary education, as well as other post-secondary options. Each counselor monitors the academic progress of approximately 200 students. Counselors communicate frequently with parents and coordinate efforts to support their students who are experiencing emotional crises or lack of success in school.
In additional to the traditional school guidance counselors, a limited number of clinical counselors provide therapeutic supports for the considerable number of students who experience emotional distress interfering with their ability to make progress in school or who are returning from therapeutic hospitalizations and require emotional support. Clinical counselors provide psychological services as required for some special education students in their IEP’s, as well as individual counseling for general education students in crisis when referred by the school guidance counselor.
