ASCA National Model

The TTES School Counseling program is based on the American School Counseling Associations National Model. The ASCA Model is designed to serve all students needs in the Academic, Career, and Personal/Social domains.

Individual Counseling

The School Counselor meets with students based on student, teacher, parent/guardian, or administrations requests. The School Counselor will meet with students and make referrals as needed. The School Counselor is not able to meet with students individually on a regularly scheduled basis due to the number of students at TTES, but through collaboration with parents/guardians, the School Counselor will ensure that student needs are met.

Small Group Counseling

Students have the opportunity to participate in Group counseling throughout the year. Groups are conducted on different topics based on needs. Groups last for 6 weeks and students must have parent permission to participate. Group counseling may also be offered during Aftercare.

Themed Weeks
