Helping students to balance their lives is part of King’s Academy’s guiding principles. In an effort to foster resilience and wellness, our four full-time counselors aim to provide support beyond the individual level, where they follow a holistic approach to promote a healthy lifestyle. The wellness spaces, located in the library upstairs, have two primary roles: to serve the individual psychological needs of students and to foster the psychological health and well-being of the King’s Academy community. Services include individual and group counseling, extracurricular wellness activities and campaigns, wellness classes, psycho-education, consultation services to parents, teachers and departments, and referrals to outside mental health services or professionals. Some of the counseling initiatives include the peer counseling program, the Freedom from Chemical Dependency campaign, and the advising program at King’s Academy.
