Each of the elementary schools and the high school in Lloydminster Catholic School Division have a Personal School Counselor that students can access. The School Counselors work with community supports to help serve the social and emotional needs of our students. Lloydminster Catholic School Division has a Family Counselor that will provide supports to families that need specific care. The School Counselors focus on:
- Providing personal and social counseling to students - Our counselors meet with students individually to assist the student to address personal difficulties that arise. Counselors will serve as supports in a confidential environment that allows students to work through their personal difficulties.
- Coordinating support for students from community agencies in certain circumstances where students need additional support - The School Counselor will ensure that proper contacts are provided to the student and assist them in accessing the needed service. The School Counselor will also serve as a coordinator of services to assure that the student is receiving the appropriate service.
- Promoting positive lifestyles at all levels - Positive lifestyles are an important aspect for our students. To promote this, our counselors work with the schools to set up activities that will provide students with information and practical ideas regarding the various aspects of positive lifestyles.
The High School has two part time Academic Counselors. These counselors meet with Grade 9 students as they begin to plan for their future and continue planning their academic program all the way to transitioning to post secondary learning environments. The High School Academic team works with the student to support high school competition as well as introducing students to programing or work placement available after graduation.
