The school counselors collaborate with the Academic and Cadet Life staff, Parents, and community members to avail unified support for all students.
Counseling for Students
The Counseling Department is here as a resource for your son as he experiences a time of growth, accomplishment, and change. Our Counselors work to help Army and Navy Academy students develop the competencies necessary to make self-directed, realistic, and responsible decisions.
Social and emotional development affects academic growth at every age, and Counselors play a critical role in helping provide support to Cadets through classroom guidance lessons, group activities, one-on-one counseling sessions, and school-wide counseling initiatives.
The team looks forward to working with our entire school community as we build partnerships to promote the academic, personal/social, and career development for each Cadet.
Students often seek out their friends or peers when they are experiencing a problem, so we provide a Peer Counseling Program for all Cadets.
Potential Peer Counselors attend intense training, led by the Counseling Department. During training, they work on listening and conflict resolution skills. Peer Counselors — easily identified on campus by their blue and orange chord — are also trained by Staff on how to identify if a Cadet’s dilemma should be referred to an adult counselor.
With acquired life skills such as: independence, resiliency, responsibility, and a firm understanding of the principles and practices of leadership, we are proud to be invested in the education and training of tomorrow’s leaders.
