Support For The Whole Student

The Counseling Department is committed to providing compassionate, confidential care and social-emotional support to our students. We offer a comprehensive program to proactively address the stress and anxiety young women face today and we equip all students with tools and resources to learn more about themselves and the impact they will make on our world. In addition to personal, confidential counseling and advocacy, we also offer a variety of opportunities for the girls to grow both academically and emotionally.

Angelo, our loveable and huggable therapy Labradoodle, is in the counseling office to provide our students a snuggle break when needed. We offer a Stress Recess each quarter at exam time to de-stress and have fun. Our large group guidance sessions include education about maintaining healthy friendships, communication, and personal safety, and we offer optional therapeutic small groups addressing grief, wellness, and organizational skills.

The Freshman Seminar class, required in the freshman year, targets mental health education, school-readiness skills, and cultural intelligence. The class provides a safe forum for students to learn about and discuss current and relevant topics impacting their social-emotional and academic development. Each weekly topic offers education through a speaker, counselor-led discussion in a small group, and community outreach activities. Topics include: study skills, suicide prevention, marginalization, feminism and racism, body image, anxiety and stress management.
 
Saint Ursula Academy also partners with the Grant Us Hope Foundation and offers Hope Squad, a peer-to-peer suicide prevention program.
 
For students requiring greater support, we confidentially provide students and families with appropriate referrals, both to our school psychologist and/or outside counseling resources.
