Emotional and social support is important to the education of children.  "When schools attend systematically to students' social and emotional skills, the academic achievement of children increases, the incidence of problem behaviors decreases, and the quality of relationships surrounding each child improves." (Elias, M. J., 1997)

The counseling program in the Lower School is dedicated to providing the best social and emotional learning opportunities for your children.  This is achieved through one on one support, group activities, in class teaching, and consultation.
