The Student Support Team at St. John Neumann is comprised of the guidance counselor, principal, academic coaches, classroom teachers, and parents. The academic coaches and teachers acknowledge the unique learning styles and challenges that students may face in all grade levels.
Collaboration between the classroom teachers and the academic coaches are based on benchmark assessments, classroom performance and other progress monitoring data to determine the learning needs of the students. Academic coaches work with individuals or groups of students who may need additional instructional, organizational or behavioral strategies. Additional areas of support include Title I services, writing lab and homework club.
Students attend guidance class with our counselor once per month where they discuss topics such as diversity, digital citizenship, and safety through the Children’s VIRTUS Safe Environment program.
The school counselor is your point of contact for any social or emotional struggles impacting your student’s education and school experience. Our counselor also serves as the SST Coordinator at the school, working with teachers and academic coaches to ensure that the educational needs of all students are met and facilitate academic testing as needed.

- Individual sessions for students when they need to talk about a specific issue;
