Welcome to the School Counseling Department
Class of 2021 College Planning Night
If you weren't able to attend our Virtual College Planning Night program last week, have no fear! We recorded the program, and you can watch it by clicking here. You can also review the power point presentation by clicking here. As always, don't hesitate to reach out to your counselor if you have any questions.
COLLEGE VISITS FALL OF 2020
This fall, instead of visiting Radnor High School in person to meet with juniors and seniors, colleges will be offering virtual information sessions. Virtual sessions will begin on September 21st, and will run through the fall during the school day. You can find the schedule in your Naviance account under College Visits.
To register to attend, log onto Naviance by visiting: https://student.naviance.com/radnor. Click “Colleges”, then “Colleges Home”, and scroll down to the bottom of the page. In the lower right hand corner you’ll see a section labeled College Visits. If you click “Show more” you’ll see a list of every college scheduled in the fall. To register for a session, just click the Register Now button next to the college. Only students can register for college visits through their student accounts. Please note this list will continue to grow as the year progresses.
On the day of the visit, log back onto Naviance. From the College Visits page, you can access the virtual event link through the same page where you registered to attend. This link will be activated 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting.
For questions, email Leonor.Gelpi-Perez@rtsd.org.
School Counseling Overview
Each incoming freshman class is divided alphabetically into five groups, with each group assigned to a counselor. Counselors work directly with that group of students from the beginning of their freshman year through graduation. Our goal is to provide each and every student with comprehensive guidance and counseling that reflects their individual needs, supporting students to achieve their academic and personal goals. Throughout the year, counselors meet with students individually, in small groups and in the classroom to assist with:
- Academic advising including course selection, scheduling, and academic support (see here for more information on academic support available in school)
- Social and emotional counseling including peer relationships, stress management, conflict resolution and crisis intervention
- Career exploration using tools on Naviance as well as community resources
- Post-secondary planning, beginning with the initial search through the application and acceptance process
For a more comprehensive explanation of our School Counseling curriculum, please see our curriculum overview. The School Counseling department also hosts evening programs for students and parents over the course of the school year. Click here for a complete description of the 2020 -21 evening events.
To discuss a question or concern, or to schedule an appointment, students and families can contact their counselor directly by phone or email.
