High school is a time of transformation for all teenagers. At St. Michael the Archangel, our counselors partner with students on their journey—supporting them in their spiritual, academic, personal, and emotional growth to foster independence as they transition to adulthood. We invite parents and guardians to participate in this process by joining with us to offer guidance and instill confidence in their student(s) in order to assist them in becoming successful young adults.

St. Michael is committed to helping students succeed in all facets of their development. Students face many social and personal situations. The counseling program provides both academic and mental health support for students during the school day. Counselors are available to guide and support students through many issues as well as make referrals to outside agencies when needed.
