The mission of the Counseling Office at St. Mark’s School of Texas is to provide assistance to students and their families with academic, behavioral, and emotional needs. The Counseling Office staff also supports and bolsters St. Mark’s commitment to the Health and Wellness of every student.
Each Division has a dedicated psychologist available as a resource for students, parents, faculty, and staff. The school counselors are experienced Clinical Psychologists who understand and respond to the challenges presented by our diverse student population. St. Mark’s school counselors are integral to the total educational program and coordinate and deliver many of the Health & Wellness initiatives.
Faculty and administration look to the counselors for their expertise in developmental factors that impact a student’s learning and functioning in the school community. The counselors work closely with faculty and staff to identify and serve students in need of support.
