Mission Statement: St. Ursula Academy school counselors work in the best interest of each student in cooperation with the St. Ursuline core values. School counselors help develop the full potential of each student including spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional well-being. We follow the academic, personal/social, and career standards as outlined by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model. Counselors help each student achieve her potential through classroom guidance, individual meetings, interventions, and collaboration with the student, parents, faculty, staff, and administration.
