The Grove School offers a variety of support through its counseling department. Unlike larger schools in California, which average 708 students per 1 counselor, the Grove School counselor is able to meet with each of our 230 students individually.
On one level, counselors offer career and academic guidance to achieve student goals in and following middle and high school. These include high school course and graduation credit guidance, organization and preparation for testing needed for applying to special programs, the military, and university; college application assistance; and education for families on topics such as financial aid, scholarships, and other preparation for life after high school.
On another level, the Grove School counseling office also is a source of social and emotional support, providing education to staff, faculty, and students on a whole school and an individual basis. Their work enhances the whole child philosophy of education that guides the Grove School program.
