Personal & Social Counseling

Gonzaga Preparatory School's Counseling Department is pleased to provide comprehensive counseling services to meet the personal, academic, and college counseling needs of our students.
 
Throughout the entire student life at Gonzaga Prep, student counseling is rooted in the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, care for the whole person. As student advocates, counselors work in conjunction with faculty, other student support staff and administration to provide guidelines and assistance to our students (and their parents/guardians) as they navigate their high school experience.
 
Our counselors help students seek opportunities that will engage students to thrive at Gonzaga Prep.Our counselors assist in the scheduling process, and are also here to support students and families with personal and crisis needs.
 
Our goals:
  1. Facilitate students' total development (self-esteem, sense of purpose, problem-solving abilities, spirituality) in light of Gospel values.
  2. Facilitate positive communication between students, teachers, and parents.
  3. Provide crisis intervention as needed.
  4. Provide community referrals for personal issues as needed.
  5. Provide drug and alcohol education and refer to community resources as needed.
