Fenwick Celebrates School Counseling Week

February 6, 2019

Commemorating School Counseling Week, Fenwick College Counselor Ms. Laura Docherty explains why she loves working with college-bound Friars: 


"Cheers, tears, and everything in between: It is a gift to be able to witness students’ growth throughout their four years of high school," Ms. Docherty tells her peers at the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). "I have two bins in one of my closets full of thank you notes.

"Seeing them reminds me of how important it is to meet each student in the moment," she continues. "Whether they are struggling with a relationship at school or home, celebrating a college acceptance or scholarship offer, attempting to budget and accommodate college costs, or trying to figure out how to improve their grades and/or test scores, each encounter is different and unique — just like our students."
