The Counseling Department of Servite High School offers a comprehensive program that supports all students academically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and vocationally. We accomplish this by providing a compassionate, safe and confidential environment and by advocating on behalf of students to meet their developmental needs.
The Servite Academic Counseling Department consists of four professional academic counselors, each assigned to students of a specific grade level. Each counselor is a specialist in the issues and challenges of their grade level and is available to help sort out the many choices and decisions a student must make from freshman through senior year. A School Psychologist is available for referrals and works collaboratively with every counselor in supporting the students and identifying any additional assistance or support necessary. The department also includes a Director of Student Support who works closely with students who have a documented learning difference.
The Academic Counseling Department is available to students every day of the school year from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. We encourage all students and parents to contact the Academic Counseling Department at (714) 774-7575 extension 1134, with any questions or concerns.
