Comprehensive school counseling and guidance programs are an integral part of the total educational program. All students benefit from programs that are developmental in nature, preventive in design, and comprehensive in scope. We employ strategies to enhance academics, provide career awareness, develop employment readiness, encourage self awareness and advocacy, foster interpersonal communication skills and impart life success skills for all students.
The goal of The Brentwood School’s Guidance and Counseling Program is to help students develop and successfully complete an educational plan that meets state graduation requirements and fits the students’ personal needs, interests, abilities, and career aspirations. We believe the personal/social aspects of the student cannot be totally separated from the academic. Our goal is to assist students with coping/resiliency mechanisms, and personal/interpersonal skills that will enable them to better succeed in the classroom and in life.
Internship Based Learning
An Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) allows for the acquisition of knowledge and skills through instruction or study outside of the traditional classroom methodology. Emphasis is on personalized learning, student engagement, and alternate approaches to student assessment. ELOs are designed to match students’ diverse learning needs, talents, interests, and developmental levels. ELOs can play a crucial role in helping students develop essential workforce skills, positive social behaviors and attitudes, improved engagement in learning, and development of skills such as problem solving and/or higher-order thinking. An extended learning opportunity typically comes from a combination of student interest, teacher support and inspiration, and opportunities available in the community or the school. Extended Learning Opportunities provide authentic learning experiences for all types of students. Given the individual nature of ELOs they may be especially beneficial for students who struggle with the regular high school academic program. Transportation to ELOs will be determined by the student’s special education team as part of the planning process. More about ELOs
