Which Counselor works with which students?
Guidance Department counselors are prepared to assist FVL students
to better understand the many challenges they face during difficult
times. Topics can range from friends, teachers, parents, or other
personal matters. All are discussed in the strictest of confidence
as regulated by law. Students are encouraged to make appointments
when possible or to visit with a counselor as immediate needs
arise.Group counseling opportunities may also be
available throughout the school year.
Due to the serious nature of some problems, referrals may need to
be made to such outside agencies as Wisconsin Lutheran Child and
Family Service, and others.
