  • Confidentiality

    An important obligation of college counselors is to maintain the confidentiality of their students. College counselors are obliged not to disclose information that a student has shared, within the context of the counseling relationship, unless such disclosures are necessary to protect the student from posing a serious threat to him/herself or others.

  • The Role of College Counselors

    La Salle Academy's College Counseling team provides comprehensive advisement to students and their families throughout the college selection and application process. By working closely with class deans and faculty, counselors help students find a post-secondary option that best fits their strengths, interests, and goals.

  • Working Together

    Preventive and developmental counseling helps students cope with the stresses and pressures that affect their personal development and academic performance.

    In theory, the College Counseling Department does distinguish between counseling (dealing with such personal matters as emotional issues or social adjustment problems), advising (academic matters) and post secondary planning. In practice, our approach is more holistic.

    Although each counselor’s primary responsibility is counseling and advising, the department works collaboratively with the principal, vice-principal for academics, vice-principal for student life, deans, teachers, parents, and other school personnel to ensure continuity and effectiveness in dealing with the whole student.
