AECHS Counseling Guideline


AECHS counselors embody one of the school’s core values which is based on preparing responsible students capable of making good choices. Due to life’s unprecedented challenges that bring a lot of stress and anxiety, students may feel lost and their goals may become uncertain. Hence, counselors play an essential role in supporting and guiding students to navigate the challenges that impact their performance in and out of school.

The counselor’s role is to help teachers and parents as well. Teachers consult with the school counselors or refer students who may have difficulties in the classroom. Parents are encouraged to get in touch with school counselors and discuss any concerns they may have regarding their child’s academic and personal well-being. However, when counselors notice issues that may require additional assessment or professional intervention, students might be referred to external services.

Counselors provide support by addressing students’ disciplinary issues. Essentially, they help students understand the reasons behind their discipline, highlight their mistakes, and guide them through the associated emotions. Concurrently, counselors work on reshaping the thoughts and behaviors that initially led to the problem.

Counselors also collaborate with the student support specialist teachers to provide help for those with special learning needs.
