In addition to the day-to-day faculty support that students receive at Lausanne Collegiate School, Lausanne has dedicated counselors and learning specialists to aid students in both learning differences and emotional needs. This also affords students the opportunity to explore advanced work by enhancing the differentiation already offered in classrooms in every division. The Lower School features two learning/reading specialists and a counselor. This same counselor also serves the Middle School students in addition to the learning specialist support of the Middle School Assistant Head. The Upper School features a unique advisory program in addition to the Upper School counselor.
Meet the Counselors
The counseling program offers resources to students, parents, and teachers to encourage healthy academic, career, and social/emotional development in all students. The counseling program also teaches students positive mindsets and behaviors through classroom guidance, small group counseling, and individual counseling. The counselor supports parents and teachers during conferences while maintaining the role of student advocate.
Samantha Douglas offers resources to the Upper School. The Upper School Counseling program subscribes to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) guidelines which support the academic, social and emotional development of students. Both the advisory program and learning specialist services are housed within the counseling program. Individual and group appointments seek to support students in learning new strategies to live into their personal strengths and goals. Please make us aware of any illnesses or life circumstances which may affect your child’s learning. We want to support our students and families through all four years of this wonderful journey together.
