About

School & College Counseling Services 

The Salesian High School Counseling Department consists of three highly trained, state certified professional school counselors, who are committed to meeting the needs of all of our students. Our goal is to have a working relationship with each student and their teachers and families to develop their academic, social, and emotional well-being.

 The Department is also pleased to have a part-time Archdiocesan Drug & Alcohol Prevention Program(ADAPP) counselor on staff. The ADAPP counselor facilitates “push-in” presentations in the freshman health classes, educating students on making healthy social decisions, specifically pertaining to substance use/abuse. He also provides individual and group counseling for referred students.  

 The Counseling Department hosts a number of informational meetings for parents, emphasizing the college process including college application and financial aid presentations, our annual college fair, and individual family meetings in the spring of junior year.
