Counseling

The aim of the School Counseling program at Academia Cotopaxi is to promote the personal, social, emotional, career, and academic development of students through a child-centered and developmentally appropriate school wide vision. Students at Academia Cotopaxi will develop skills and knowledge in these areas as well as a global perspective of life, based on appropriate socio-emotional stages of development. The counseling program seeks to foster well-rounded students while concentrating in the  unique needs of an international, national, and transient student population.

The Counseling Program will support a safe learning environment and work to safeguard the rights of all members of the school community, help create a welcoming, inclusive school climate and ensure each student’s dignity and culture is embraced (including: race, ethnicity, gender, abilities, sexual orientation, home language, religion, socioeconomic status, etc.). Counselors will address the needs of all students through prevention and intervention programs that are part of a comprehensive school counseling program which abides by International School Counselor Association (ISCA) International Model for School Counseling Programs.

Our vision is that through a collaborative approach with teachers, administrators, staff, and parents our students will become self-aware, ethical, empathetic, confident and productive lifelong learners in our global society.
