Counseling & Wellbeing
At KIS, we understand the importance of providing comprehensive support and guidance to our students as they navigate the various academic, social, emotional, career and post-secondary challenges.
Our goal is to empower our students with the tools, resources, and guidance necessary to achieve their full potential and to lead fulfilling lives.
Our comprehensive counseling model is intended to support all students, parents, caregivers, and educators.
