Where does counseling take place?
Catholic Charities offers testing for students in our Diocesan Schools. Testing provides assistance for teachers, staff, and parents in determining the best approach in helping a student who is struggling
personally and/or academically. It can be difficult to understand what a student is experiencing and how to provide appropriate support.Testing can give clarity, finding the areas where the student
needs support, such as academic difficulties, emotional struggles, anxiety, and behavioral problems. With this information, parents, teachers, and staff can create a team approach to support the student
and help him/her develop necessary skills that will allow them to continue to grow in a positive direction.
