ACADEMIC COUNSELING RESOURCES
Patrice Holmes, MsEd, LSC
Hi, I’m excited to serve as the Academic Counselor here at Providence Cristo Rey High School (PCRHS) now going on three years but have served with PCRHS as a staff member going on four years! My role is to assist students in planning and completing their high school career on time, while monitoring their academic progress and periodically connecting with parents/guardians on their progress so that parents/guardians will be student’s number one cheerleader and motivator. Together we’ll make a great team in seeing students succeed in being college and career ready one grade at a time!
SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL & MENTAL WELL-BEING
Kandace Kyere, MSW, LSW
I support students & families at PCRHS by: Providing a safe and uplifting space for students work through feelings of anxiety (worry), depression (sadness), anger, frustration, grief, hopelessness, and many others. We problem solve, focus on their strengths, and explore healthy ways to cope with what they are experiencing. I also make referrals to our school based mental health partners (Hope Haven), and I connect students and families with our school pantry and/or other community resources. Essentially, I work alongside students and parents to find ways to decrease the social, emotional, and situational barriers that may be impacting their ability to thrive at school or attend school each day. Parents are welcome to reach out to me if they are concerned with their child’s social or emotional well-being and/or need assistance with finding community resources. I look forward to connecting with you!

COLLEGE & CAREER RESOURCES
Chelsea Ward, MsEd
College and Career Counseling at Providence Cristo Rey provides each student with the opportunity to effectively plan and prepare for college. As the college and career counselor, I am extremely dedicated to providing personalized guidance and comprehensive knowledge and support to all students throughout the college enrollment process or with their chosen career path. Ultimately, the goal is for every student to attend a college/university (or find a career) that is the best fit for their needs personally, academically and financially after graduation. College is a transformational journey, and I am very invested in each student’s ability to succeed and ultimately achieve their educational and professional goals.
