  • Statement of Confidentiality

    Your confidentiality as a student is important to us! In our school counseling office, what is said here, stays here, with the following exceptions, as required by law and/or ethical standards:
     
    1. Harm to self or other:
    This could include things like a suicide attempt or plan, cutting or other self-injury, eating disorders, addictions, fighting or other physical violence, illegal behaviors, threats, etc. -- anything that puts your health or safety, or someone else's health and safety, at risk.
     
    2. Abuse or neglect:
    If you talk with one of us about abuse (physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, or other abuse), whether to yourself or to another minor, we are required by law to report it to Child Protective Services, and possibly the police. If you tell us about an abuse case that's already been addressed by CPS or the police, we still may need to make a call to double check.
     
    3. Court or other legal proceedings:
    By law, if we are subpoenaed (required by law to attend a hearing or other court proceeding), we cannot guarantee that your information will be kept confidential. We will always do our best to reveal as little as possible in a legal setting, but we must cooperate with the police, CPS, and the courts. If there is ever a need to reveal information, we will let you know in advance, and work with you to handle the situation in a way that respects you, your feelings, and your needs.

Services Provided

As a college-prep high school, it is important for students and families to begin the college process early. As such, Crespi subscribes to a robust college search website and tool called Naviance. Naviance is a web-based resource for Crespi students that supports student course, career, and college planning. Each family receives a login ID and password to gain access through the Counseling webpage to their personal account.

Naviance allows students to:
  • Complete career and college interest surveys that will produce a list of target colleges
  • Compare Colleges
  • Track Deadlines
  • Produce Scattergrams
  • Show Schedule of College Visits
