Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart


Counseling Center

The hallmark of Sacred Heart Academy’s Counseling Center is the individualized attention and support it provides to each student.  Counselors are available to assist students with personal issues and provide referrals to health professionals, The Learning Center, and peer mentors and tutors.  Counselors work with students and their families to arrange individual educational services, enrichment opportunities, assessments, and referrals. 

The Counseling Center also works closely with students throughout their four years at SHA to assist them with college selection, the application process, and career planning.  Our three full-time Counselors provide individual and group classes, family sessions, referrals, testing, career-choice assessments, and technological support to help each student complete a successful college search.  Counselors help students locate and apply for available scholarship opportunities and financial aid.
