The Bishop Fenwick counselors strive to support the school’s mission by providing services aimed at cultivating the spiritual, personal, social and academic goals. The counselors support students in their quest to develop in all areas by individual counselor meetings, small group instruction, and classroom guidance lessons. They work hard to assure families and faculty will be engaged and informed regarding guidance related activities and offerings. Bishop Fenwick school counselors act as members of a team aimed at serving the students along with parents, teachers and staff.
Students are invited to ‘The Nest’ at least once during their freshman year and many times over their academic career at Fenwick on an as-needed basis. Counselors continuously provide information and support through small group meetings, Flock Blocks and whole school assemblies. During Flock Blocks each counselor meets with their grade level students in small groups throughout the school year to discuss grade level appropriate topics in social/emotional, college career, and academic areas.
The Bishop Fenwick Counseling Department serves students and their families with academic, social/emotional and career/college Information, which includes the following:
- Academic Support & Advising
- College & Career Search

About The Nest: The Counseling Department is located in a separate modular building that is called ‘The Nest’. The Nest is a space for students to not just meet with their counselors, but a safe place were students and freely interact, learn and grow.
