JAA Counseling Program

Overview

The John Adams Academy (JAA) Comprehensive School Counseling Program (CSCP) strives to provide all scholars with academic, social/emotional, and college/career skills to be successful servant leaders.

The role of a school counselor and the basis of JAA’s CSCP is to help scholars

  •         Apply academic achievement strategies
  •         Manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills
  •         Plan for postsecondary options (higher education, military, or the workforce)

This is achieved primarily through small groups, classroom presentations, and collaboration with teachers, parents, and scholars. The counseling department also provides community referrals, crisis intervention, and individual sessions as needed. More specifically, school counselors provide:

  •         Individual scholar academic planning and goal setting
  •         School counseling classroom lessons based on scholar success standards
  •         Short-term counseling to scholars
  •         Referrals for long-term support
  •         Collaboration with families/teachers/administrators/community for scholar success
  •         Advocacy for scholars at individual education plan (IEP) meetings and other student-focused meetings (e.g. 504 plans, SST, & other scholar support).
  •         Data analysis to identify scholar issues, needs and challenges

 

To request an appointment, scholars or parents can fill out a Counselor Request.

Please allow 24 hours for a response Monday-Friday during school dates. If there is an emergency, please call 911.

Confidentiality Statement:

When scholars speak with a school counselor, what they say is confidential unless they are a danger to themselves or others. This will continue to apply for phone and video appointments with the counselor. However, due to the nature of phone and video conversations, confidentiality may be affected depending upon the scholar's location and access to privacy.

Please notify the counselor if there will be barriers to privacy during your conversation or if you have any concerns.
