WELLNESS & MINDFULNESS PROGRAM
Counseling and Mindfulness Program
Escuela Americana has a strong counseling program, which addresses the academic, career, social-emotional, and global development of all students. Escuela Americana counselors offer personal guidance and support to students in the school (PK-12) in order to facilitate a clear understanding of their personal, emotional, social, and academic needs as they mature and develop.
The primary vision of the counselors is to empower students with the necessary tools to become positive, healthy, self-fulfilling members of the school community and society in general.
Current educational research shows that schools that have strong academic programs who have integrated with empathy and wellness opportunities for students have even higher academic outcomes upon graduation.
For that in EA, we created a Mindfulness Program, which helps alleviate some of the modern-day stress our youth are feeling. We know that the whole child is more capable of learning when his/her emotional needs are met and want to help facilitate this optimal state for our community of learners.
In our yoga and mindfulness class students notice what is, reflect and focus on improving their mental and physical health. The classes consist of universal concepts such as personal and group connection, focus, breathwork, movement, and relaxation.
