Student Support

 

As students enter their teen years, life often becomes a turbulent challenge of personal growth on many fronts: peer pressure, desire for popularity, relational issues, hormones, and so much more. When these quite normal “challenges” are combined with other cultural pressures and, in some cases, difficult family situations, it is easy to understand why some teens have difficult episodes navigating this time.

The book of Hebrews says, “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith” (Heb. 13:7). Geneva’s Student Services Department is comprised of leaders—men and women—who are engaged in speaking truth to our students whenever and wherever opportunities arise. But we also recognize that sometimes a student needs particular guidance to help navigate specific circumstances.

All of the student services staff members have an open-door policy to counsel with students.

They are available by appointment for both parents and students. Students may also seek them out for guidance and counseling in those brief free moments between classes and before and after school.

Mike Beates (Dean of Students) brings decades of ministry experience (beginning with Young Life in 1980!) with parents and students alike.

Isabel O’Driscoll (Director of Student Services) has a depth of experience both academic (a degree in psychology and counseling) and practical (many years of direct ministry with young people).

Scott Thigpen (Director of College Counseling) has a master’s degree and is licensed in clinical counseling which equips him well to help students.

Lou Jones (School Nurse) is a registered nurse and promotes a culture of lifestyle wellness in our Geneva community.

Jill Kong (Registrar) and Amy Heidman (Administrative Assistant), in addition to their normal duties in student services, are glad to invest in our students’ success in all areas of faith and life.
