School Counseling

Every young person who graduates from TASIS has an inner strength based on the school’s timeless values of truth, goodness, and beauty. Through a comprehensive school counseling program, TASIS students embody these values by learning self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and global perspective. Our students are driven to act with compassion, serve others who are less fortunate, and learn how to be global citizens. Facilitated by school-wide practices and policies, strategic partnerships, as well as family and community engagement, counseling is an integral piece of the TASIS experience.

The goal of the School Counseling Department is to provide a structured program of services that addresses the educational and personal/social competencies necessary for students to contribute and succeed in a changing society. While maintaining the positive school culture that exists at TASIS, all students will be supported in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become productive students, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens.
