Student Support

The Geneva School is a caring community of faith and learning. Students are at the heart of everything that we do and are the reason that we exist as a school. We are grateful to the parents who have entrusted the faculty and staff with the opportunity to partner (in loco parentis) with them in the formation of their children. We recognize that all students will have times when they experience great success and times when they are dealing with formidable challenges. Learning, growing, and maturing through the middle school and high school years inevitably come with challenges, adversity, and hard-won successes that build character and confidence.

Our goal in the Office of Academic Support and College Counseling is to support students as they walk through their middle and high school years. We do this by helping students with their academic needs. We strive to motivate our students to seek after the good, the true, and the beautiful. We provide redemptive discipline for our students who need redirection. And we encourage our students in the Christian faith to know and imitate Christ.

The support team includes Peter Vande Brake (dean of students), Isabel O’Driscoll (school counselor/academic support), Scott Thigpen (director of college counseling), Jill Kong (registrar), Lou Jones (upper school nurse), and Anne Classe (administrative assistant). The entire faculty and staff are here to support the students, but this team has been blessed with the opportunity to engage more intentionally with the young men and women in the upper school. If we can help in any way, please contact us!

Blessings,

Peter Vande Brake
