Comprehensive School Counseling Program


La Salle Prep’s Counseling Department is committed to helping students realize their potential as they enter an ever-changing and demanding society. The counseling staff provides services that respect and honor the needs and dignity of each student. The services contribute to the development of the total person in a Christian academic community. Counselors help students succeed academically, make informed choices about their lives, navigate through personal problems that may affect their achievement, motivation or self-image, and develop an individualized college plan.

 

La Salle counselors help students discover and maximize their academic and social strengths so that they are prepared for college and life beyond high school.
