Elementary Counseling Provided at CASA


The goal of guidance and counseling at our school is to provide each child with an understanding of himself/herself in relation to God and His Word by meeting the academic, spiritual, physical, and social needs of each student as he/she lives a life that will please and glorify God.  For that reason, our office responds to this need through the following program components:


  1. Guidance Curriculum – guided lessons to help students reach their full potential academically, spiritually, and socially

  2. Responsive Services – interventions for students at risk of not succeeding in education, personal, or social areas as a result of immediate concerns or problems

  3. Individual Planning – guiding individual students’ academic, spiritual, and social goals and development

  4. System Support – supports the promotion of students’ academic, and social development on behalf of the school community (teachers, staff, parents, and community)


Throughout the year, we develop skills in the following areas:


  • Behavior 

  • Transitions

  • Peer relationships

  • Setting goals for academic success

  • Planning and problem-solving

  • Overcoming test anxiety

  • Study habits

  • Time management and organization

  • Absences

  • Dealing with difficult situations

  • Anti-bullying


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call, email, or visit with me at your convenience.
