Counseling Services

Our staff of licensed professionals is always available to help students navigate the challenges of adolescence and boarding school. No problem is too big or too small to discuss with a counselor.

About Counseling Services

Under the oversight of the director of counseling, counselors are available to help students with the challenges of adolescence and boarding school life. Short-term outpatient treatment is provided at no cost. Licensed therapists provide outpatient treatment and are available for on-call emotional crisis evaluations and consultation as needed when school is in session.

Psychiatric consultation is also available to students who request medication evaluations and diagnostic consultations. Usually, students who are prescribed medication are also seen in brief psychotherapy in the counseling department.

Please note that fees for psychiatric services are not included in the health and medical fee of tuition. Parents must make separate arrangements for payment.
