The John Jay/SEA Counseling Team will serve all students by empowering
them to become self-advocates and lifelong learners through our comprehensive guidance program
Our Comprehensive Guidance Program consists of:
Individual Planning - Counselors meet one-on-one with students as they plan, monitor, and manage their own educational, career, and personal-social development.
Responsive Services - Counselors assist students whose immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued personal-social, career, and/or educational development at risk. These services can be provided through individual or small group counseling.
Guidance Curriculum - Guidance lessons are delivered in various classrooms throughout the year and are used to help students develop basic life skills.
System Support - Counselors provide services in other areas which indirectly benefit students, such as consulting with teachers and attending counseling staff development.
