The VMA Counseling Office advises and guides the academic, personal, and social/emotional well-being of students throughout grades 7-12. VMA counselors strive to develop a personal relationship with their students in order to advise and guide them as students navigate their teenage years.
Success in school is not solely dependent on academic success but is influenced by personal and social issues. VMA's counseling program seeks to equip students with the ability to navigate these issues in order to become successful, well-rounded members of society.
In addition to counseling department's work with students, there is the Benedictine Mentor program in which students are paired with a teacher to help them build on their academic and social growth. Through the mentorship program, students meet upperclassmen who may serve as role models and guides through the high school years.
