Counseling Department

Welcome to the Chamlian Counseling Department
At Chamlian Armenian School, we believe in fostering a nurturing environment where every member of our community can thrive. Our Counseling Department is at the heart of this effort, offering comprehensive support to students, parents, and faculty alike. We strive to cultivate a culture of empathy, confidence, and pride in each student's unique identity. With a focus on mindfulness, personal growth, social skills, and fostering a growth mindset, our goal is to support the holistic development of our students.
We’re here to ensure that every student can access the support they need, no matter the circumstances. Feel encouraged to reach out to Ms. Maral Keosseian, our dedicated Counselor, at [email protected] for support, guidance, or more information. The Chamlian Administration is always here for you!
Our Services:
Our department offers a variety of counseling services tailored to address the social-emotional needs, personal development, and relational challenges our students may face. Group sessions are available when needed, ensuring a supportive space for students to share and grow together.
We also collaborate with qualified professionals and invite speakers to lead assemblies, enriching our students’ learning experience with valuable insights and expertise.
A cornerstone of our department is the "Character Education" program, designed to instill strong values and positive social skills. Through this program, we focus on the immediate needs of our students, guiding them towards emotional maturity and fostering the qualities of a productive society member.
Accessing Counseling Services: Students are welcome to seek counseling services on their own initiative or may be referred by teachers, administration, or parents. Our counselor, Ms. Maral Keosseian, works closely with the Chamlian community to ensure each student’s personal and social success.
Confidentiality: We uphold the utmost confidentiality in all matters related to student counseling, ensuring a safe and trustful environment for everyone involved.
Our Philosophy: We believe in the development and reinforcement of character traits such as caring, citizenship, fairness, respect, responsibility, and trustworthiness. Following the guidance of "Elementary Makes the Grade! (CDE, 1999)," our systematic approach includes adult modeling, curriculum integration, creating a positive school climate, and providing comprehensive guidance and counseling services.
At Chamlian Armenian School, our Counseling Department is more than just a resource; it's a commitment to the well-being and success of every student.
