Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth….Eccl. 12:1

Welcome to the Briarwood Christian School Counseling Center. God can do so much in the life that’s given over to Him, especially when that life is in the spring of its youth. It is an immense privilege to help guide the lives of our students. Our purpose is to lead our students through the process of seeking God’s will for their academic, personal, social, and college and career decisions.

Our offices are located on the first floor in the High School building. Dedicated to developing supportive, meaningful, and ongoing relationships with students and parents, our goal is to ensure that every family is given the support and encouragement they need to make informed, prayerful decisions concerning the direction of each student’s life. All sessions are strictly confidential and will not be shared with others unless requested by the student or parent. Exceptions to confidentiality are threat to self or others and disclosures of abuse or neglect. In the rare case when confidentiality must be broken, the student will be informed and supported appropriately.

We invite parents and students to explore the School Counseling Center page to become better acquainted with our various services and programs.
