school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help
all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social
development and career development, ensuring today's students become the
productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Collaborating with
administrators, teachers, parents and other community members to promote
student achievement, professional school counselors address the needs
of students through prevention and intervention programs that are a part
of the comprehensive school counseling program.
school counselors have a master's degree or higher in school counseling,
meet the state certification/licensure standards and uphold ethical and
professional standards of the American School Counseling Association.
