Academic Advisement

Our multi-purpose facility provides a safe, supportive environment. It’s the ideal setting for a one-on-one meeting or for a college recruiter’s group presentation. Most importantly, the department is structured so that counselors really get to know their advisees. Not only is there a very low student-to-counselor ratio; students get to know their counselors through individual meetings and seminar classes.

Through individual and small group meetings, students are guided through a comprehensive program which includes goal setting, decision making, personal strengths and career preferences. The counseling department follows a careful process of encouraging students to challenge themselves and gain awareness of their own values, learning styles and personal attributes in this important stage of their development.


Comprehensive Seminar Program

Through individual and small group meetings, students are guided through a comprehensive seminar program which includes setting goals, building decision making skills, focusing on personal strengths and exploring career preferences. The counseling department follows a careful process of encouraging students to challenge themselves and gain awareness of their own values, learning styles and personal attributes in this important stage of development.

Each year, students at Lauralton Hall are assigned a seminar class. Freshmen and sophomore seminars are held in rotating academic class periods. College Seminar is built into students’ schedules during second semester junior year and first semester senior year.
