About Us


The purpose of counseling is to help students understand themselves in relationship to their environment, to develop their interests and potential in order to attain their life goals and to become a mature, self-directed Christian.

To assure every student the opportunity to use these services, they are listed below.  The counselor assignments are for the 2017-2018 school year.  Students are assigned to a counselor in freshman year and will continue with that counselor throughout their four years at Wood.

In the course of the year, each counselor will interview, at least once, every student for whom that counselor is responsible.  We realize, however, that problems and difficulties do not follow time schedules, so you may schedule an appointment whenever the need arises.

PROCEDURE FOR MAKING AN APPOINTMENT:  Please refer to the above list for your counselor’s location.  See your counselor during your free time or lunch to request an appointment.
