GWA's Counseling Department strives to ensure that each student realizes his/her full potential as a unique human being. The goal is to facilitate the growth and well-being of each and to help each individual achieve academic, personal, and life success. Counselors expect all students to work to the best of their ability to be:
- Inquiring and Reflective Problem Solvers
- Knowledgeable and Skilled Learners
- Effective Communicators
- Self-directed and Balanced Individuals
- Responsible, Caring and Ethical Contributors
All School Counselors have university graduate level training in counseling and have special skills and resources to help ensure that students' personal, social and intellectual needs are met.
Schools increasingly need to be responsive and caring places to help all students through many important transitions on the way to becoming independent, responsible adults. School Counselors are trained to provide confidential and student-centered services as well as counseling-related programs.
GWA has an incredible multicultural environment, with over 90 nationalities represented. Counselors are sensitive to this unique environment and respect cultural differences and values in their counseling and consultations.
Counselors also serve as a link between administration, teachers, parents, and outside community resources and agencies. Please find our counseling programs below:
