At Holy Comforter, three counselors serve the students, teachers, and families. Through guidance classes in the lower school, the TARGET programs in the middle school, consultation with parents and teachers, 1:1 and small group meetings, and parent workshops, a personal rapport is built with families to help each student.
Our program provides tools students can draw upon in the classroom and in life. Character education begins with the basics in the lower grades guiding students through topics like friendship and feelings, communication, handling stress, changing friendships, and failure. In middle school, character education focuses on the power of words, ethics, leadership, self-confidence, failure and perseverance, gratitude and community service. We have a culture where children grow and develop in an emotionally safe environment, they are known by name, and they are loved for their individuality.
