We believe that the school-based counseling support each student receives at NEA is critical to his or her academic success. We work diligently to create a balance for students between challenge and support. To this end, each student is assigned a counselor who meets with them regularly, coordinates communication between teachers, families and other members of the student’s support team, and works to ensure that the proper balance of support and challenge is being provided on a daily basis.
Students have access to their counselors throughout the school day ensuring issues are dealt with in a timely and proactive manner. Once a student finds social and emotional confidence and safety, their academic skills, abilities and talents can truly flourish.
In addition to working towards success in academics and day-to-day life, counselors at NEA also support students in areas including, but not limited to, anxiety management, social skill development, peer issues, feelings of depression, test anxiety, study skill development, learning strategies and school-based concerns. When a student receives support commensurate with their needs, they are more readily able to reach their full potential, rising to meet challenges that may otherwise seem insurmountable.
“What we didn’t know about NEA when we enrolled our son, and what we have come to value above all else is that the staff refuses to give up on any student, even when things get tough. When our son would have a tough day, the counselors at NEA were able to bring him back and help him break his disruptive cycle. They were able to look beyond his struggles to see the extremely sweet, generous, talented and wonderful person that needed help underneath. With NEA’s help, our son has come a long way in a relatively short time, and for that we will be eternally grateful.”
