Wellness Counselors

Awty's Wellness Counselors collaborate with the pedagogical team and parents to promote the academic success and social-emotional well-being of our students.

Throughout the year, the counselors provide services of observation and consultation for students, faculty, and parents. They offer social-emotional learning opportunities, character education, and special programs that prepare students for the challenges of life. Students are welcome to initiate a meeting with a counselor, and referrals to the counselors can be made by administrators, teachers, and parents.

Wellness Counselors provide parents with information and strategies to support their children’s development through parenting forums on a variety of topics during the school year. The counselors are also available to meet with parents upon request. When additional assessment or services are indicated, our counselors can provide families with resources to consider in the community.

Please login to the myAWTY portal for additional resources and information.

The Awty Counselors are happy to assist you in any way they can. Please feel free to call for a consultation.
