School Counseling Office
School Counseling Program

The mission of Buist Academy for Advanced Studies’ School Counseling program is to support all students through a three-pronged model approach; Learning to Learn, Learning to Work and Learning to Live. This comprehensive approach to the school counseling program will address the academic, career and personal-social skills of our students in order for them to become contributing members of our society, life-long learners and positive influences on their community and the world.

The School Counselor’s role is to work collaboratively with home, school and the community to foster personal responsibility and provide the necessary tools for students to manage future challenges as they work toward becoming successful 21st century citizens.

We look forward to working with you and your child throughout their years here at Buist Academy. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you ever have a question or a concern.
