School Counseling Program Overview:

The school counselors support the mission of the Greenwich Public Schools by helping all students access the coursework and extracurricular activities that will allow them to reach their highest academic potential, and develop the capacities outlined in the Vision of the Graduate. The school counselors also actively contribute to the development of a safe and supportive environment in which to learn.

Throughout the year, the school counselors meet with students individually, in small groups and in the classroom to assist with:

  • Academic advising including course selection, scheduling, and academic support
  • Social and emotional counseling including peer relationships, stress management, conflict resolution and crisis intervention
  • Career and college exploration using tools on Naviance as well as community resources
  • Post-secondary planning, beginning with the initial search through the application and acceptance process

Students are assigned a school counselor who works with them throughout their four years at Greenwich High School. To discuss a question or concern, or to schedule an appointment, students and families can contact their school counselor directly by phone or email, or contact their House’s Guidance administrative assistant.
