Middle School Counseling
Lancaster Mennonite’s school counseling services facilitate the holistic development of all students by:
- Assisting students in planning their educational careers through high school and beyond
- Arranging educational services to students according to their unique learning needs
- Supporting students in the midst of emotional/family stresses
- Encouraging students to make responsible life decisions
Services are provided in a nurturing, pastoral environment, seeking to challenge students to lives of Christ-like mission, peacemaking and service in a global society.
Developing an interest for future plans is an important part of the guidance and development process among the middle schools at all campuses. Students will explore careers and career paths throughout their middle school years that will help them to develope a plan for the future. Career path development at the middle school level leads into the development that is a part of the high school advisory groups.
Eighth-grade students should begin to review the Curriculum Guide to be familiar with the courses offered before the high school course selection process begins in January with their counselors.
At times through school, students may need additional tutoring support. The school counseling office can help to coordinate tutoring opportunities. Depending on the subject areas, the counseling team may have connections with current high school students who tutor during their study hall or after school. Please contact the school counselor to see if there are students available to serves as a tutor for your child.
