The St. Andrew’s counseling staff is committed to providing an additional safe place on campus for students to openly communicate, receive support, and, most importantly, to be heard.
Students are welcome to stop in to see Mrs. Latreille or schedule a time to visit when they are not in class. Advisors, teachers, and administrators can refer a student about whom they are concerned to the counseling office. Parents are also encouraged to contact the counseling office if they are concerned about their child and would like a counselor to check in with them.
While St. Andrew’s counselors proceed with appropriate action based on their professional judgment, they do not provide on-going therapy. If the counselor identifies a student to need on-going services, the counselor will contact the parents with appropriate referrals. In most cases, older students will be encouraged to inform their parents of their meetings and to give permission for the counselor to communicate directly with their parents.
If your student has been diagnosed with a learning difference, the counselor will inform teachers of what accomodations need to be put in place. If you suspect your child might have a learning difference, please consult the counselor for suggestions about doctors and testing facilities. For a fuller explanation of the school's policy on learning diffences, please see p. 61 of the Handbook.
