Counselors at the Julia R. Masterman School see students in both the middle school and high school – from 5th grade through 12th. Their areas of concentration include:

  • College-related issues
  • Adjustment issues and student support
  • Information-sharing

The category of college-related issues includes the actual process of applying to college and obtaining financial aid. It also includes all aspects of the search process and career-related planning. Adjustment issues include achievement within the school and referral to outside agencies in the event of related health and/or mental health concerns. Information-sharing includes the posting of work-related opportunities, scholarships, volunteer and summer opportunities, and extracurricular academic resources.
