Counseling Department

Bellarmine offers students a comprehensive counseling program to address personal, academic and college areas, as well as other post-secondary choices.

Counselors also provide Parent Information Nights throughout the year. Parent Nights are specific to each grade level, sophomore through senior.

Students are encouraged to see their counselor whenever they need assistance. Students come to the Counseling Center for a variety of reasons and counselors are trained to provide assistance in many areas. These include, but are not limited to:
  • Concerns regarding academic performance
  • Support for personal issues such as low self-esteem, relationship concerns, family issues, anxiety/depression, and sexual identity questions.
  • Answers to questions about standardized testing
  • Help with the college search and application process(also see Naviance, an interactive college planning resource)
  • Referrals for outside therapists or assessments
Except in emergencies, students should arrange appointments at least one day in advance. Students must have their teacher's permission to miss class for a counseling appointment and are responsible for the material they miss.

Counselors

Bellarmine has a full-time counseling staff to meet the academic and personal needs of the student body. Students are assigned to a counselor by Ignatian Formation Period and that counselor will work with them through graduation. The counseling offices are located upstairs in the Connelly Campus Center.

Freshman Year Through Graduation:

Students will be assigned to their counselor based on their homeroom. This counselor will work with them all four years advising them regarding their schedules, monitoring academic progress, helping with college applications, and providing assistance with personal concerns.

The Counseling Office uses Family Connection, an interactive college planning resource, to help students prepare for college and careers.
