Southern Wake Academy Counseling Mission Statement:
The mission of the Southern Wake Academy Counseling Program is to provide a developmental curriculum that encourages growth in the areas of academic, career, and personal-social development in order to support the highest level of student achievement and enable all students to experience educational success.
Southern Wake Academy Counseling Vision Statement:
It is the desire of Southern Wake Academy to participate in the making learning a lifelong journey for our students. We want to meet our students where they are and help them obtain their goals both during and after their time at SWA. We will set the bar high for our students academically and assist them in achieving those academic, emotional, and career standards along the way. All students participate in a rigorous curriculum and high-quality opportunities for self-directed personal growth supported by the comprehensive schooling program that facilitates strategic partnerships between the school, family, and community.
What does a School Counselor do?
School counselors provide short-term counseling support to students but cannot provide long-term, in depth counseling services. If we have a student who needs more support we will provide families with resources to seek out further help outside of school.
