At Divine Child High School, our counseling department offers college, academic, personal, grief/crisis, and transition counseling tailored to the individual needs of each of our students. Our administrators, Parish priests, Campus Life Director, and a licensed social worker are available to offer assistance.

Instructional Support Program

Divine Child High School has instructional specialists on staff to assist students diagnosed with developmental, physical, emotional or cognitive challenges directly affecting their ability to learn. Completely mainstreamed into our college preparatory curriculum, students with mild learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, mild autism, cerebral palsy and hearing/visual impairments have all experienced academic success at Divine Child. We work with students to develop individual study and test-taking strategies while helping them build a sense of independence and strong, clear self-advocacy skills.

In order to prepare our Falcons for college and adult life, we offer the following:

  • Naviance Family Connection: a comprehensive college and career readiness program.
  • PSAT: free standardized testing to prepare students for the SAT.
