Wellness Resources

An education at Holland Christian schools also includes access to school counselors for personal counseling, as well as education in mental wellness and mental health.

Our elementary and middle school counselors typically visit with students for personal counseling involving any matters important to students, from relationships with friends, family, and teachers, to general anxieties and mental health. High school counselors are available both for personal and academic counseling. When necessary, our counselors can recommend an outside counselor, social worker, or resource as well.

However, through the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent upheavals, mental health and awareness is even more at the forefront of our minds. Below are a variety of resources for both parents and students at all grade levels. However, please also contact any of the school counselors as needed.
