School Counseling – The Hershey Campus

Walking with Students

At the Hershey Campus of Lancaster Mennonite School, we facilitate the holistic development of all students by assisting in planning educational careers through high school and beyond, offering support in the midst of emotional/family stresses, encouraging students to make responsible life decisions, and arranging educational services to meet unique learning needs.

Overview

At the Hershey Campus, small class sizes and personal attention allow for a more customized education and help students thrive academically at all levels. The following are worth noting:

  • SAT scores are consistently well above the national and state averages.
  • Spanish and Chinese language classes
  • 22 online Advanced Placement classes plus AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP U.S. History, Computer Programming, HTML Web Design, and AP Computer Science

School counseling services encourage all students to take the opportunity to experience a wide range of artistic activities, including music, art, introductory and advanced classes in digital photography, video editing and Photoshop.

High school students are matched with a faculty advisor in an Advisory Group for all four years. Students keep the same advisor during their entire high school career. These groups function as a special support to each student academically, a safe place for students to have conversation together and an opportunity to pray together in a smaller group setting.

Kirk Benner, Lancaster Campus Director of Guidance Services, advises students on college and vocational options after high school graduation.

The Guidance Office also provides students with support from a Capital Area Intermediate Unit Counselor several days a week, as well as a part-time speech and reading specialist.

Circle of Grace

Out of concern for all God’s people, Lancaster Mennonite School has a program for the safe environment education of children and young people called Circle of Grace. It is meant to supplement and be integrated into our current faith-based curricula to equip our children and young people by arming them with essential knowledge and skills grounded in Christian faith. This program helps children and young people to understand their own (and other’s) dignity in mind, body and spirit.
