Counseling Program

The Counseling Program at Helias Catholic High School seeks to positively impact the lives of  students by partnering with parents, community, faculty and staff.  Our program seeks to help students find their purpose by merging their gifts and passions with needs in the world. Our program offers comprehensive planning and guidance services addressing student academic, spiritual and career goals, while meeting their emotional, personal and social needs.

Education is a responsibility shared by students, parents, staff, and community and is based on an atmosphere of mutual respect. We believe that every student:

  • Has the potential for learning and for meeting high academic standards.
  • Has a unique set of individual needs that must be considered as he/she develops at his/her own rate.
  • Has God given gifts that must be explored, identified, nurtured and celebrated to help every student reach their purpose.

We believe that the school counseling program should:

  • Have a delivery system that includes school guidance curriculum, academic support, spiritual guidance and social/emotional counseling.
  • Meet the comprehensive needs of all students.
  • Support student academic, career, spiritual and personal/social development.
  • Be both comprehensive and developmental in nature, proactive in design, and responsive to the changing needs of our students.
  • Monitor student progress.
  • Use data to drive program development and evaluation.

These are some good questions to ask when considering these classes: 

  •   Will the college a student attends accept credit for this class? 
    • Note: You will need to give them the name of the class at Lincoln University not Helias Catholic.
  • Will the credit go toward my general education requirements or will it be an elective credit?
    •  Note: The students intended major is probably the most important factor in determining this.
  • Will the grade earned for the dual credit class at Helias Catholic become part of my college grade point average? 
  • Can I get in writing via a letter or e-mail that the college will accept the credit?
