The Guidance Department seeks to give all students the full and continuing opportunity to reach their potential. The optimal development of each student is the primary and central goal of the department. In working toward this goal, the department offers a wide range of services including academic, career, college and personal counseling. All guidance programs are based on the values of self-understanding, self-acceptance, informed decision-making and responsible, productive behavior.

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

The goal of educational counseling is to give each student every opportunity to succeed academically. Students may initiate these sessions, they may be initiated by the student’s counselor, or they may be referred by a teacher, parents, or other school personnel. Educational counseling may focus on the student’s performance in school, as well as advisement in the course selection process. Students who have multiple academic failures are seen by the counselor in an effort to improve the student’s academic performance.

TUTORING

If you are interested in volunteering as a peer tutor – Please pick up an application form in W-101. If you were a tutor last year, you do not need to get teacher recommendations again. But, if you are a new member, please ask just one teacher from each subject area (you select to tutor) to sign the application, which will indicate that they recommend you to be a tutor.

If you are a student in need of a tutor – Please go to W-101 and see Mrs. Logan or Mrs. Williams. Within a few days, you will be contacted and introduced to a tutor after cor. At that point, a scheduled time and location will be established. Each level has designated “sign” books to keep track of the meetings.

It’s a program that works well when both parties are committed to the scheduled appointment times to meet and use this time efficiently.

Personal Counseling

The Guidance Department offers personal counseling in order to help students with self-understanding, self-acceptance and personal adjustment.School is one important part of a student's life, but cannot be separated from the student's personal life, and there are many occasions when it is important to speak with a counselor about personal concerns.Students may see their assigned level counselor.

Appointment sheets are available in the Guidance Office: W-101.

The Guidance Department conducts various small groups. These groups usually meet during the school day – some meeting for a pre-defined number of sessions, some running indefinitely. A student’s membership in a group is voluntary and confidential. While all of these groups are offered each year, only those with a sufficient enrollment will run. If you are interested in joining one of these groups, or need additional information, make an appointment in W-101 or see your counselor.

BEREAVEMENT GROUP

For those who are upset after the death of a loved one and are ready to share their feelings with others.

LIVING WITH AN ALCOHOLIC AND/OR ADDICT

For those who are upset about the drug and/or alcohol use of a loved one with whom they are living.

SEXUAL IDENTITY GROUP

For gay and lesbian students and those who think they may be, to explore issues of concern such as health, discrimination, family, etc.

DIVORCE AND SEPARATION GROUP

For those students who wish to discuss the particular pressures and problems resulting from divorce or separation and/or the challenges of step-family life.

ILLNESS AT HOME GROUP

For those who are living with someone at home who is seriously ill.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT SUPPORT GROUP

For those students who are away from their native country.

NOVEMBER 2 - CUNY APPLICATION RECOMMENDED DEADLINE




 COLLEGE INFORMATION NIGHT FOR JUNIORS


Below are some of the highlights regarding COLLEGE DECISION MAKING:

* Make a list of the colleges in which you are interested.

* Log onto these college websites to gather some important information: majors offered, programs available, location, cost, a general profile of GPA and SAT scores of admitted students, application deadlines, if SAT II tests are required, etc.

* Most college applications require an essay. Check websites to see if topics are given. If not, a personal statement is accepted by many schools. This can include a personal experience that has been an influence in your life. The summer is a perfect time to begin to write rough drafts so that you have a head start on the process. Seniors: When you return to school in September, you can ask an English teacher to review the essay, or visit the writing center for help(appointments available through the English Department). Do this early, as they will get many requests, and you need to be respectful of their time.

* Visit Colleges. Fall and Spring are good times to attend "open house" at colleges. Most colleges will give tours during the summer, and even speak with students and parents. It will give you some idea of the campus and facilities, traveling time, surrounding environment, etc.

* SAT: JUNIOR STUDENTS TAKE the SAT in the spring. Once you receive those scores we suggest spending time over the summer preparing for the fall SAT. Focus on the area(s) where your performance was weak. SENIOR STUDENTS WILL TAKE THE SAT (again) IN THE FALL.

*SENIORS: It is very strongly suggested that you register on-line for the October or November SAT exam during the summer approaching senior year.

 2018 EFL Scholarship Opportunity for a St. Francis Prep student

We’ve just heard that we can again offer a full scholarship ($1700 to cover tuition, as well as travel costs) to another EFL or EHFL (Economic History for Leaders) program this year, and I wanted to let you know as soon as possible.  The student should be either a currents sophomore or junior.

 

This year, our EFL and EHFL sites and dates are as follows:

June 18 – 24                                      Yale University 1                                                             New Haven, CT

June 25 – July 1                                 UCLA                                                                                 Los Angeles, CA

July 2 – 8                                            Oberlin College                                                                Oberlin, OH                                       

July 9 – 15                                          Wake Forest University                                                  Winston-Salem, NC                             

July 16 – 22                                       Cornell University                                                           Ithaca, NY                           

July 23 – 29                                       Brown University                                                            Providence, RI

July 30 – Aug. 5                                 University of Washington                                              Seattle, WA

Aug. 6 – 12                                        University of Michigan                                                   Ann Arbor, MI                   

                             

ECONOMIC HISTORY FOR LEADERS (EHFL)

July 9 – 15                                          Tufts University                                                               Boston, MA

The EHFL programs focus more on American history, and how economic forces contributed to pivotal events in U.S. history.  It is definitely a unique look at how economics can affect real-world outcomes, and also provides sessions on leadership thinking.

 

The scholarship funds are intended to fully cover the cost (program registration, meals, housing, and travel to and from the site) of attending EFL, or our newer program, EHFL.  The student application, site and date information, and details can be found on our website at:  https://www.fte.org/students/economics-for-leaders-program/.  The student should be either a current sophomore or junior to be eligible to attend this summer.  The ideal scholarship candidate should be someone who has a strong academic record, has the potential to apply themselves and become (or already is) a rising leader, and who might not otherwise be able to attend a program like this on their own.  The EFL and EHFL programs offer students an opportunity to learn about themselves and their place in the world by teaching introductory economic reasoning skills that can be applied to decision-making, as well as developing their leadership skills.  We are accepting applications on a rolling basis through March 15, but the sooner they apply, the better, as spots are filling quickly.
