St. Ursula Academy school counselors work in the best interest of each student in accordance with the Ursuline core values. School counselors help develop the full potential of each young woman, including her spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional well-being.
High School Counseling
SUA’s High School counselors work with students in three key areas: academics, social/emotional support, and career readiness. In conjunction with SUA’s leadership team, prevention-intervention counselor, college counselor, coaching staff, faculty members, and parents, they ensure that every Arrow has a rigorous, yet supportive, academic and social experience at SUA.
Junior Academy Counseling
SUA’s Junior Academy counselor specializes in understanding and meeting the needs of our youngest Arrows. She works closely with the JA Director, the prevention-intervention counselor, faculty members, and parents to help students at this age grow in their academic, social, and emotional development.

“School counselors recognize their primary obligation regarding confidentiality is to the student, but balance that obligation with an understanding of the family’s or guardians’ legal and inherent rights to be the guiding voice in their children’s lives... However, students should be informed that exceptions to confidentiality exist in which school counselors must inform others of information they obtained in the counseling relationship to prevent serious and foreseeable harm to students themselves or others and if it is legally required.”
