Counseling Services

While Rectory cannot replace a child’s real family, we are dedicated to providing boarding students with an enriched and supportive community that becomes their home away from home. Having counselors who live on campus and interact with students on a daily basis allows for comprehensive knowledge of each student and the environmental factors that impact their daily lives. 

Rectory's counselors have extensive experience supporting adolescents as they navigate what can frequently be a challenging time developmentally. The opportunity for students to talk about their day, challenges they may be experiencing in the classroom, and their peer relationships with a trusted adult are invaluable. Guiding students through these challenges is one way that Rectory builds strong, independent learners and happy and healthy young men and women.
