School Counseling

Northwood Academy Charter School's counseling department is committed to providing all students with the services needed to systematically address students’ academic, career, and social-emotional needs. We believe that by meeting these needs, we are able to better assist students in exploring, planning, and realizing their interests, abilities, and goals to help them reach their full potential. Our school counselors are the first line of help for personal and crisis support. They are also available to assist in the coordination of individual counseling, crisis intervention, and/or group counseling and other supports through our partnerships with Malvern and CORA services.
