Chautauqua’s counseling program is designed to assist all students in our school. It recognizes that every student must have sound emotional and social skills in order to achieve optimum benefit from the educational program. Although the counseling program is for all students, parents may choose not to have their children participate by informing the elementary counselor or the principal in writing.
