The well-being of our students is a top priority for all faculty and staff at Hopkins. In keeping with our Mission, we believe a healthy balance of physical and emotional well-being, along with a sense of community and belonging, provide students with the tools needed to guide them to a lifelong love of learning and the development of character that are essential to leading a rich and purposeful life. Our Student Support Team works closely with parents, teachers, advisers, coaches, and outside professionals to support the unique needs of each student. In addition to our dedicated advisers, faculty, and staff, our team includes a Clinical Psychologist, School Counselors, the Director of Academic Support, the Dean of Students, and Head Advisers.
The goal of the Student Support Team is to provide students with safe, appropriate, and effective resources for managing the challenges of everyday life. The team is available to all students as a resource and offers the opportunity for brief, solution-focused sessions regarding issues that affect students’ academic or social-emotional health. When appropriate, the team facilitates referrals to other resources for longer-term support. Although most students refer themselves, faculty, staff, advisers, and/or parents can also refer students when they feel that some level of support would be beneficial.
