• Guidance Services
    Chapman’s Retreat offers a wide variety of counseling services. From whole-class instruction to meeting individual needs, the guidance department includes resources to help each child be their best.

    Small-Group and Individual Counseling 
    Small groups are organized to help students meet certain challenges they may be facing. These groups give student’s an opportunity to share and acquire specific skills in a confidential setting. Small groups consist of 3-6 students and usually meet once a week for 6 weeks during the grade level lunch period. Some of the guidance groups offered at CRES are friendship, anger management, self-esteem, grief, and family change. Individual counseling is offered to students as needed. Students can be referred by parents, teachers, or self-referrals.

  • A Leader In Me
    Teachers and staff at Chapman’s Retreat work daily to foster the development of the whole child.  The Leader in Me program provides students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive now and in the future.  This approach to teaching the whole child introduces and develops an understanding of seven habits that lead to happy, successful children.
