Diocese of Albany Counseling & Social Work Program

Provided by Catapult Learning

Catapult Learning is excited to partner with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany to provide counseling and social work services to kindergarten thru twelfth grade students and their teachers and families in all of the Diocesan schools. This partnership has been made possible through a generous grant from Fidelis Care and the Diocesan School Board.


School counseling and social work services will be provided throughout the Diocesan schools to support students, teachers, parents, and administration. The goal of the program is in line with the mission of our schools; educating the whole child-mind, body, and spirit. Parent and Teacher workshops will be a vital part of the program.
