Counseling Curriculum

9th Grade: Inward

During freshmen year, your son will learn a variety of skills that will help him adjust to life in the high school.  Students will work on effective time management skills and study skills.  Counselors will emphasize the value of getting involved at Malvern and making the appropriate social adjustments.  We will also spend time addressing their online persona, their responsible use of social media, and clear decision making.  Resistance skills around drug and alcohol issues will also be addressed.

10th Grade: Outward

In the sophomore year, students will continue to build upon the skills acquired in 9th grade.  In addition we will delve deeper into career exploration through a variety of assessments and activities.  Continuing to work on social responsibility and decision making skills will allow our young men to grow and develop.  Further exploration in our Family Connection program as it relates to Test Prep and the college process will also occur.

11th Grade: Onward

The college process is the main ingredient of our counseling curriculum in junior year.  Students will continue to build on the skills taught in freshman and sophomore year, especially as it relates to learning about how their interests can translate into college majors and careers after college.  Students will learn how to research and visit colleges and, with their counselor, will begin building their college list.  The end of the year will focus on starting the college essay writing process.

12th Grade: Upward

The first half of 12th grade focuses on the college application process, including continued writing of college essays, the teacher recommendation process and finalizing the college list.  The second half of 12th grade aims to prepare students for college life by covering topics ranging from money management and time management in college to navigating college social life and living away from home.
