Helping Students Become Their Best Selves

Readily accessible online, in person, and by phone, our counselors offer individual attention and expertise to our students and families. We help students thrive during their time with us as well as plan for their bright futures ahead. Our dedicated team of full-time, licensed school counselors offer: 

  • Academic goal setting, scheduling, and planning
  • Personal and social development
  • Future planning, including college and workforce preparation 

South Carolina Connections Academy school counselors understand the importance of guidance instruction in personal/social, college/career, and academic domains.

Each school counseling program (Elementary, Middle, and High School) provides weekly lessons to students. South Carolina Connections Academy abides by state regulations and covers Erin's Law and Gavin's Law each year. Parents are given advance notice of those lessons via webmail communication.
