As Shanghai SMIC Private School counselors, we are passionate advocates who exemplify compassion, empathy, and support for all students. We promote students’ academic, social-emotional, and future planning growth through services that ranges from class lessons to individual counseling. The focus of the counseling program aligns with the Expected School-Wide Learning Results (ESLRs), where students are prepared to be Healthy Individuals, Motivated Learners, Persons of Character, and Global Citizens.
SMIC counselors are members of the International School Counselor Association (ISCA), a professional organization, which provides leadership and advocacy for the profession of school counseling in International Schools, and the International Association for College Admissions Counseling (IACAC), the world’s premiere organization for professionals engaged in international college counseling and admissions. Personal counseling support is provided based on individual student need in partnership with students, families, faculty, and the Academic Office. For individual one-on-one counseling, we ensure the mental, emotional, physical safety, and well-being for all students. Students can speak to counselors about topics or situations in a confidential, non-judgmental manner to ensure the best interest of all our students.
SMIC fully embraces its responsibilities inherent in child protection and safeguarding the needs and welfare of our students. Furthermore, our school recognizes that the welfare of our students is paramount and that all children regardless of age, gender, ability, culture, race, language, or sexual identity have equal rights to protection.
We will endeavor to protect students from abuse or risk of abuse. Abuse can fall under the following four headings: neglect, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and physical abuse. All members of staff are expected to be vigilant and report concerns immediately to the Child Protection Office (a designated member of the Counseling Office). Students are encouraged to report to staff any type of bullying or abuse they may be aware of. Students and parents should also be aware that confidentiality cannot be guaranteed if it compromises the student’s or their family’s safety. We value the safety and protection of each and every one of our students unconditionally.
