Academics

School Counseling

The Academy of Saint Elizabeth offers a competitive academic program designed to challenge each student, nourish her desire to learn, and reward her efforts and achievements.
The Academy of Saint Elizabeth offers the ideal environment for young girls to become empowered, independent young women rooted in faith and gospel. Beyond the scope of academic oversight and college advising, our Counseling Department remains attuned to the social emotional learning (SEL) of our students. Because we focus on the whole student, we implement progressive programming and outreach to ensure that our school climate remains one of acceptance, inclusion, and harmony.

KIND Campaign

Our School Counseling Department also remains attuned to the socio-emotional health of our students. Since we focus on the whole student, we have implemented progressive programming and outreach to ensure that our school climate remains one of acceptance, inclusion, and harmony.

To achieve this, the Academy takes part in the KIND Campaign program, a national initiative which promotes “awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl bullying.” Students are led by Kind Campaign Leaders to discuss ways to promote unity and respect amongst their peers.
