The Guidance Department of St. Scholastica's Academy was pioneered by Sr. M. Ligouri del Rosario, OSB, in 1961 and served as the Guidance Director. At that time, 63 students were enrolled and were served by the Guidance Department. The student population rose year after year, necessitating for additional Guidance staff. In the 70’s, there was one Guidance Director, 2 counselors and 1 secretary. At present, with a steady enrolment of more than 3,200 students in Grade School and High School combined, we have 1 Guidance Head, 4 counselors in High School, 4 counselors in Grade School, 2 Psychometricians and 2 secretaries willing and happy to serve the students and the school community.

The specific Guidance Department services are as follows:

  • Follow-up service continues the activities begun in other services until all needs for services shall have been met.

  • Research and evaluation service seeks new information and other important data for the development of programs that would answer the needs of the school and the students.
