Learning and Counseling

Garage Academy recognizes that students learn in different ways. The Learning and Counseling team assists members of the GA community develop strategies to help all of its students achieve academic success.

We work with students to help them reach to their greatest potential and to contribute to our learning community. We aid parents, teachers, and administrators in understanding the academic, developmental, and social/emotional dynamics impacting Garac children and families.

In partnership with faculty and administrators, the Learning and Counseling team provides a continuum of services that help students with all learning styles and needs, maximizing their potential while making curriculum accessible and enriching the school experience for all students. The Learning and Counseling team serves the GA community by:

  • Working closely with individual and small groups of students, both inside and outside of classrooms, to help strengthen areas of learning challenge
  • Collaborating with teachers to support the academic and social/emotional needs of students
  • Promoting the health and wellness of students through in-class lessons, individual and small group meetings, and parent and student workshops
  • Partnering with parents, teachers, and outside specialists to support student development and success
