Students and parents are encouraged to contact their counselor to answer questions about scheduling, level placement, social/emotional concerns, activity participation, or overall adjustment to the School. The Counseling Department believes that proactive responses are key to a student’s well-being and academic success. Counselors act as the first line of defense in assisting students and families and sometimes determining if a student needs additional services, such as the School Psychologist or Learning Specialist.
In addition, each Upper School student will meet once a cycle throughout the entire school year with a small group of classmates to work on a variety of skills including: study skills, time management, career and learning assessments, the college process, and life beyond Malvern. These classes are taught by the School and College Counseling Departments and will serve to address our school mission.
