The Somerset Academy Guidance Department works with students, parents, and the community to foster a positive and supportive learning environment. The Guidance Department office is located in the Middle/High Administration Building.
The essential role of the counselor is to be a student advocate. Counselors assist with personal, academic, social, and post-secondary concerns that can aid the student in order to reach their full potential. Support systems such as individual/group counseling are an integral part of the counseling program at Somerset Academy. When a student is upset, a counselor is always available for them for support. Classroom activities and presentations are developed throughout the year to assist students with their personal, social, career, and educational development.
