Counseling & Health Education

Caryn Manning, PsyD, Director of Counseling & Health Education, meets with students in need and determine the best course of action, which may include a recommendation of continued counseling. Conversations are confidential, with the exception of when legal requirements prevail. The counselors are available on campus to individuals or groups of students to discuss problems relating to emotional growth, social adjustment, academic achievement or any other issue.

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.
