Social Emotional Learning & Support
Parents, if your son has experienced the death of a loved one, we would like to invite him to join other brothers in the healing process. Please have your son see someone in the counseling department for help.
"Blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted." - Mathew 5:4
Are you feeling stressed out about what is going on this year, remember to breathe and say a prayer. Take a break, listen to music, talk to someone, exercise, eat healthy food, etc. The best advice we can give you is to get help if you need it, we are here for you.
Remember your purpose
When you are feeling stressed, remember your purpose. To become Godly men for our Lord Jesus Christ. You are here for a reason and we have to get through trying times so we can grow in our walk. Talk to someone if you are feeling alone, you are never alone.
Jesus calls us to serve others. This is a great way to reduce stress and to remember your purpose. Find a way to serve. Even if you are quarantining, help your parents, brothers, or sisters with anything, chores, laundry, cleaning, lawn care, babysitting, etc. Many times we feel better when we help others.
Counselors are available to meet with students on an individual basis. The purpose of this meeting is to support students academically and emotionally. Individual appointments can be scheduled by the student or parent. We are now available to provide counseling services virtually as well. Please call or email your counselor to set up an appointment.
