Counseling & Health Education
The Counseling Department’s licensed mental health professionals work with students around a variety of concerns to help with individual growth and development. It’s counselors’ mission to help students reach their personal goals and support them through tough times.
Director of Counseling Caryn Manning, Psy.D., meets with students in need and helps determine the best course of action for each individual. Students can meet with counselors once a week on a regular basis or as needed. All in-house counseling services are free.
The Director of Counseling is available 24/7 for emergencies and can be reached here.
Members of the Counseling Department understand that for students to feel comfortable talking about private and revealing information, they need a safe place to do so without fear of that information leaving the room. Counselors always take students privacy very seriously, but there are exceptions in order to protect the student or public from harm, which are outlined in the first session.
The Health Center
Similarly, St. George’s School staffs a 24-hour-a day, seven-days-a-week Health Center with eight overnight and six day beds. The Health Center is the place to go if a student is ill or suffers an injury or needs to make a medical appointment, renew a prescription, request a medical weekend or for any health related question. The nursing staff will admit a student if an ailment calls for bed rest. Students may stay from several hours to several nights and the staff always provides a confidential, sympathetic ear.
