TRY/USY High has a Guidance Counselor (יועצת) who is a licensed social worker (MSW). The Guidance Counselor is on campus almost every day and is responsible for the social, emotional, psychological, and medical well-being of the students. This involves observing students on a daily basis and seeing how they are doing first-hand, both individually and as a group, in all aspects of the program. In addition, the guidance counselor monitors students’ adjustment to the program and its social and academic demands, maintains an open line of communication with parents and guardians, meets periodically with the student body as a whole. The guidance counselor is available to individual students both in person and by phone throughout the semester.
The guidance counselor works closely with the director and staff to make sure each student is having a successful, healthy, and enjoyable experience on the program and is heavily involved in the training of counselors prior to and during the program.
