Academic & College Counseling

Our Academic and College Counselors serve students in the pursuit of excellence in their high school, college, academic, and personal development.

Our Academic and College Counselors take a personalized approach meeting with each student and family throughout their time at JSerra. We help students achieve their personal, academic, and college/career goals by providing a comprehensive and holistic approach to counseling. We seek to meet the needs of our students by focusing on the adoption of a growth mindset, developing strategies to achieve mental and physical wellness while setting for themselves challenging and appropriate standards.

We believe all students can succeed and we support the pursuit of their goals by:

  • Discovering purpose
  • Encouraging self-actualization
  • Promoting balance
  • Teaching self-advocacy
