The City School has a certified biblical counselor on staff, surrounded by a hardworking and compassionate team of counseling interns. Jamie completed the Master of the Arts in Counseling program at Westminster Theological Seminary. She also founded and operates the West Philadelphia chapter of the Christian Counseling & Education Foundation, which she runs through our Spruce Hill Campus. Jamie and her team are pioneers of biblical counseling in the city and have a heart for sharing Jesus’ love with their students.

Counseling services are available to students at every grade level as we are committed to meeting the physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual needs of the students entrusted to our care. Because family support is crucial to biblical counseling, Jamie has decided to offer support to City School families outside of the classroom. Every week she schedules appointments at our Spruce Hill campus to meet with students and parents after business hours, to bring the whole family together in an atmosphere of grace and unity.
