Peer Counseling

We are pleased to announce that this year brings the beginning of a Student Peer Support Group. This group is comprised of 6-8 High School students, supported and guided by Karen Thompson and other High School faculty. This group will be available to offer confidential peer support and mentoring to students in the High School and Middle School that find themselves in need of guidance and support in the social realm. Please direct any question you may have to Karen Thompson, HS Counselor at kthompson@kimberton.org.

High School Counselor Karen Thompson is available to meet with students on Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00. Students and faculty may email Karen to schedule time with her or request support.
