Middle School

La Salle Institute's Counseling Department is proud to teach the Second Step curriculum to our middle school students. Second Step is a program rooted in social-emotional learning (SEL) that helps transform schools into supportive, successful learning environments uniquely equipped to encourage children to thrive. More than just a classroom curriculum, Second Step’s holistic approach helps create a more empathetic society by providing education professionals, families, and the larger community with tools to enable them to take an active role in the social-emotional growth and safety of today’s children.

Used by schools around the world and reaching more than 15 million students annually, Second Step is a longstanding partner in education, built on decades of research and experience. Educators turn to Second Step because of its record of results, its commitment to research, and its intuitive programs that are designed with empathy and scalability. Second Step is a comprehensive and sound investment to support improving child safety, readiness to learn, school culture, and academic success.

High School

Once students enter the high school program (grades 9 and 10), special emphasis is placed on study and career skills, as well as continued monitoring of students’ growth. Students will take a careers course and investigate the current job market as well as take interest inventories to learn which careers may best suit them. Counseling and interviews are available, as well as orientation for new students and transfers.

Students in grades 11 and 12 will find the School Counseling program heavily focused on college placement. This includes dissemination of information and preparation for PSAT, SAT, and ACT exams, college fairs, college interviews, college visits, diagnostic testing, letters of recommendation for college, scholarships, counseling and interviews throughout the year. In the College Prep class, students will write college essays, resumes and fill out the Common Application.

The School Counseling Department is designed so that whether you are a parent or a student, you never have to worry about college preparedness. Setting students up for success in college is built into La Salle’s curriculum to ensure students never miss a deadline or an important step.

La Salle's College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Code is 335-615.
