More than a third of today’s students in grades K through 12 face issues that can adversely affect their ability to learn. Issues such as child abuse, sexual abuse, drugs, bullying, and parent/child conflict can often manifest as classroom disruptions, poor attention, low grades and even self-destructive behaviour. Outreach Concern is a school-based counselling agency that works with students on a confidential, one-on-one basis to help them overcome obstacles that impact classroom performance.
This non-profit counselling agency helps students and their parents eliminate the barriers that impact their performance in the classroom. We have been providing counselling and support services to public, private and parochial schools in Los Angeles and Orange Counties for more than 16 years. They have a proven track record of making a significant difference in the lives of students and their families. Their on-campus counsellors are closely monitored by Regional Field Supervisors and meet weekly with a clinical supervisor who reviews all cases. They also receive ongoing direction from our Clinical Director, a professional with more than 30 years of experience in psychological counselling.
Arroyo Pacific Academy offers Outreach Concern counseling services to all students for career and college planning, as well as personal counseling services, and academic advising.
Outreach only provides personal counseling for us, although our counselor this year will also do some study skills and motivational workshops for students. Daniel Johnson does all the college and career counseling. Maybe mention his credentials. Our teachers act as students’ academic advisors through their period 5 study halls. This means students see their academic advisor every day.
