The Newport Counseling Team is passionate about working with high school students and their families. Newport is a large comprehensive high school with a strong academic focus and high percentage of students enrolling directly into a four year university. We aim to provide a balanced counseling program that assists students to set and achieve goals, explore areas of passion, become valued members of their community and live with integrity. We do this within a variety of settings (classroom, small group and individual) and through collaboration with teachers, administrators, students and their families. Please explore our website.
