Westminster has partnered with AXIS to provide parents with an "All Axis Pass" to valuable online resources. AXIS is a Biblically-based organization that offers insight into how pop culture, technology, and media are influencing children. AXIS equips parents to initiate insightful conversations with their children regarding some of the most relevant questions and challenges of life by interpreting youth culture in ways that the adult generation understands. We hope you will take advantage of this valuable resource.

Counselor's Corner: Dealing with Low Homework Grades
When low grades show up on homework assignments (and they do), students, parents, and teachers can become anxious about the problem and may resolve to tactics that appear to yield quick results. It may be more effective to have a discussion in which we recognize the student's own disappointment and work together to develop a plan of action for improvement.
Individual counseling is available for students experiencing academic, social, or personal problems. Parent counseling is also offered. Small groups are organized as needed (i.e., Peacemaking and Friendship, Family Issues/Divorce, Loss and Grief). Referrals for community resources are made as necessary.
Parent Education Meetings are scheduled throughout the school year covering topics of interest to parents. Meetings are often held through Parents’ Guild, and/or in conjunction with the counselors on the other Westminster campuses.
Peer Counseling is a group of trained student counselors who provide one-on-one, confidential support to WCS students. These peer counselors help students develop solutions to their problems through the use of active listening, open dialogue and practical coping skills.

The Middle School offers students the opportunity to participate in Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, Girls Prayer and Share, Boys Purpose and Prayer, Book Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and numerous special events and trips.
Student Support Team Meetings are scheduled to serve as a vehicle of communication between students, parents, teachers, and administration. The goal is to determine strategies and find solutions to meet the specific needs of students.
