K-12 SCHOOL COUNSELING PROGRAM

The A.D. Henderson University School & FAU High School program is based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model.

The School Counseling Team provides comprehensive counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention with continuous academic, career, and personal/development activities that will prepare students for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. These activities include classroom lessons, small groups for skill mastery, individual counseling for students with specific needs, and a variety of other proactive and innovative ways to support student performance.

We collaborate and provide resources to staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and that students have access to support services necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.
