About the Counseling Department

The Saint Viator Counseling Department collaborates with students, families, teachers, administrators, and other educational partners to provide a comprehensive counseling program to meet the academic, social-emotional, career and college needs of our students.

Counselors foster unique relationships with students as a vehicle to provide individualized counseling, supportive school-wide programs, and an extensive social-emotional and college readiness curriculum so that students reach their highest academic and personal potential.

Saint Viator school counselors meet with students individually to foster students’ growth in academic, personal/social, and college/career domains over the course of four years.

Text-A-Tip Information

All members of the community can use our Text-A-Tip service for support and concerns—just text “SVHS” to (844) 823-5323. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.


Counselors work closely with teachers and receive academic ineligibility reports to monitor student performance. Counselors also work with students to create four-year academic plans and set academic goals.


School counselors are available to help students with any difficulty, big or small. Counselors work closely with students, parents, teachers and outside counselors to best support a student’s needs.


Over the course of four years, school counselors work with students on long-term college and career planning. Students work with the College Counselor beginning the second semester of junior year.
