Counseling and Student Support
Through a holistic approach, the Georgia Cyber Academy Counseling Department will empower all students to reach their highest potential by using a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes academic, career, and personal/ social development. Our program will foster the growth of each student as a civic-minded contributor with their local communities and beyond. Upon graduation, students will be college and/or career ready and will have the competencies necessary to make self-directed, realistic, and responsible decisions to be successful contributors to society.
The mission of the Georgia Cyber Academy’s (GCA) Counseling & Student Support Services Department is to provide a comprehensive program that is accessible to all students and assists students with acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to become effective students, responsible citizens, and lifelong learners. The student services program is an integral part of the school’s total program with a commitment to individual uniqueness and the maximum development of human potential. We use a variety of differentiated interventions to ensure each student receives equitable services. The program addresses the personal/social, educational, and career needs and desires of each GCA student. The department’s ultimate goal is for students to graduate with the competencies necessary to be able to make self-directed, realistic, and responsible decisions and to be successful contributors to society. All stakeholders within Georgia Cyber Academy share in the benefits of its comprehensive school counseling program.
The Counseling department at Georgia Cyber Academy is made up of Assistant Directors, School Counselors, Social Workers, Graduation Coaches, Placement Counselors, Work Based Learning Professionals, Event Coordinators and professional personnel with a wealth of experience and knowledge. Many have worked for years in brick-and-mortar schools with all grade bands, including college level students.
Our department strives to continue the development and implementation of the comprehensive counseling and social work programs based upon the identified needs of Georgia Cyber Academy students in grades K-12. We also aim to integrate school counseling and social work programs within the total educational curriculum and programming of the school.
