Help with School Work

Students who need one-on-one help with school work, organizational skills and/or study habits may be eligible for our Study Skills program.  We have teachers, peer tutors, and community volunteers available to help you stay on top of your studies.  Click here to learn more about Study Skills -- don't be shy, we want to see you succeed!

We also welcome the opportunity to speak with community members wishing to volunteer their expertise in the Study Skills center.  Please contact us!

Crisis Intervention and Family Guidance

We often help those whose personal or family issues are negatively impacting their ability to function well in school.  Chances are, if you're trying to figure out how to deal with a situation, others before you have too so you're not alone and we can help. 

We support students and parents to work through issues including but not limited to:
  • Bereavement
  • Abuse
  • Bullying
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Mental illness
Students and parents should feel free to contact their guidance counselor any time. 

Come See Us

Students can be referred by teachers or parents, or they can just come in and speak with us directly. Our guidance counselors are also available to talk in person or by phone when parents have concerns about their students.

We Respect Your Privacy

Confidentiality is of primary concern and will be maintained, except in circumstances in which someone is believed to be in danger of being hurt. Students who might feel embarrassed about seeking help in school should know that our guidance counselors work with all students throughout the year so nobody will know what brought you into our office. Every effort is made to protect students’ privacy.

Resource Directory

We can also guide you with referrals to outside therapists and agencies as needed.  Our Resource Directory offers contact information for many support services in Ashland and the surrounding communities.  We ask that you speak with your guidance counselor rather than self-referring, so we can refer you to appropriate therapists and organizations with whom we have had good experiences.
