The St. Joseph’s Academy Counseling Department believes in educating the whole student. Our mission is to empower students by teaching them to learn and do for themselves.

This empowerment means that each student can:
  • Think for herself
  • Advocate for her needs
  • Solve problems in appropriate and timely ways
  • Balance her life by making healthy choices
To that end, we hope to assist each student in meeting her academic and personal needs.
