Worcester Academy provides a comfortable environment with approachable counselors and advisors who listen and offer support to students anytime during their career at Worcester Academy.
But we don’t stop there. We work hard to make connections with our students and aim to empower them toward healthy and safe decisions throughout their middle and upper school years. Whether it’s individual counseling services, teaching our middle school Health and Wellness classes, or supporting our PILLARS Peer Education Program, we’re committed to helping WA students develop their intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
Our counselors are available to students and parents for support and treatment, including referrals to outside providers. Although the Academy provides this service, we stress that our counseling is short-term and not intended to remedy learning disabilities, serious psychological disorders, or other problems requiring extensive or long-term attention. If such conditions are determined to exist, our counselors refer families to the appropriate service providers. We also retain a consulting psychologist and a consulting psychiatric nurse practitioner. Both work closely with our school counselors and Health Office.
