The Sage Program at Weehawken
The Sage Program at Weehawken provides supportive counseling services to Students at Weehawken High School primarily as identified in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). However, Sage In-District services have the capacity to serve special education as well as general education students through their 504 Plan.
The goal of the Sage Program is to fill the gap in service between the existing in-school support and an out-of-district placement by providing identified students with counseling to address emotional difficulties that are affecting their academic and social functioning. Individual and group counseling sessions are provided to students during regular school hours and family counseling is provided after school hours. The Sage Program works with a variety of identified students who have issues such as, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, social anxiety and Asperger’s Syndrome in addition to other typical pre-adolescent and adolescent issues. Eligibility is determined by the Director of Pupil Services and Personalized Learning and the Sage Program counselor. The Sage Program Counselor at Weehawken is Ms. Yerelyn Reyes.
