NDHS Counseling Department
The Notre Dame High School Counseling Department is part of a community based on Holy Cross values of achievement, service and respect.
Counselors strive to meet the needs of students in the areas of academics, social adjustment and career development. The counselors work toward building student independence over the course of four years.
Our mission is to develop self-awareness, critical thinking and responsibility, as well as to encourage continued growth in these areas throughout life.
We believe that this mission is a partnership between students, parents, counselors, teachers and administrators, and results in helping students reach their individual potential in academics, service and the social areas of their lives.
Counselors endeavor to act as positive role models to students and foster mutual respect in an environment of care and concern.
This mission is accomplished through both individual and group meetings and presentations for students throughout the year, that are conducted by Notre Dame counselors as well as expert guest speakers. Special group sessions are also held for parents so that they will be current on the latest college admissions information as well as pertinent knowledge regarding changes in adolescent social environments.
Notre Dame counselors work to help students with learning differences. Although the Notre Dame campus is not equipped to present a full range of special services, the school is able to facilitate minor adjustments within the college preparatory program to assist students with certain disabilities.
