Comprehensive, Developmental School Counseling Programming

The goal of a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program is to continually improve the outcomes for all students in academic, career/college, and social/personal areas.  The American School Counselor Association (ASCA – www.schoolcounselor.org) and the Massachusetts Association of School Counselors (MASCA – www.masca.org) have published models as guidelines for school counseling departments to design and implement programming.   FRCS endorses these models.

 

  

Naviance is a key element of our School Counseling Program.  It is a leading, web-based college and career exploration system.   Students will use and begin learning about the Naviance system in Advisory beginning in Grade 5 and will receive individual account information in Grade 8.  Opportunities related to the Career and College Readiness Certificate will be presented in Grade 9 and 10 Advisory.  By 11th and 12th grade, students will be required to use the system as part of Junior and Senior Advising class.  More information about the Naviance system is available HERE.

 

Academic Success

 

  • Students – Start the year off strong!  Set up times to meet with teachers if you need extra help.
  • Make an appointment to see your guidance/school counselor to talk about study skills, course planning, social supports, activities, career exploration, or any other question you have about being a student.
  • Parents and guardians – contact teachers.  Email is by far the easiest and best way to check-in with them about your student’s progress. Don’t wait until report cards!!
