FREE Counseling Service through the Northeastern Center for ALL Students!

Good News! DeKalb Central Schools now has an additional counseling program available for our students!

We are partnering with the Northeastern Center who will provide the following services to any/all DeKalb Central students and Staff.

Two (2) free counseling sessions with a master level therapist for DeKalb Central students. No deductibles, co-pays, or pre-authorization are required to access these services.

Parental Consent is required for any student under the age of 18.
There is no obligation to continue treatment after the initial two free counseling sessions. However, if a student/parent would like to continue counseling, they may do so at their own cost. NEC accepts most insurances and has fee assistance based on family income.

Free services exclude psychiatric services (medication management) and inpatient services.
