Recognizing that many factors lead to school success, DePaul Cristo Rey’s Counseling program assists students with any personal, academic and social challenges that can get in the way of their learning.
Individual Counseling/Academic Support
DPCR’s counselors are available every school day to meet with students individually. Students can send an email to request an appointment or can simply drop by the office to see if a counselor is available. The counselors strive to help all students understand themselves as individuals, discover their abilities and talents, and make good decisions in personal, academic and career areas. We also offer academic support to those students with IEPs and ISPs.
If a parent notices a student is experiencing significant emotional problems, please contact the counselors for assistance. If needed, a counselor can assist with a referral to our partner organization, Beech Acres, or to another community resource.
Our counseling team works with each student and family to navigate the college exploration and application process.The many aspects of DPCR's College Counseling program can be found here.
