Sis. Joy - School Counseling

Hello My Name Is...

Sis. Joy

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to you and your family.  My name is Sis. Joy and I am the School Counselor at Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School for the 2019-2020 school year. I am excited and privileged to be apart of such an amazing community of educators and scholars.  I am honored to assist your child  and to help them succeed and meet personal goals for this school year and beyond.

Sankofa Freedom Academy Charter School offers counseling services to support social and emotional growth throughout the school year.  Counseling sessions in a school setting  focus on solutions to help your child succeed in all areas of their development. Counseling activities can include individual or group counseling, whole class presentations and observations.  Many of these activities will focus on helping students learn ways to build positive social skills, gain confidence in their ability to interact with others and learn ways to deal with problems and conflicts constructively.

Your child may be referred to counseling by a teacher, staff member, self-referral or by you as a parent/guardian.  To make a referral, you may call or email me personally. The counseling office phone number is 215-288-2001 (Ext. 101). A permission slip for all counseling services will be provided. 

On this page you will find useful resources to support your child's therapeutic process. I  look forward to working with you and your family. Have a stress-free and prosperous school year!
