About Our School Counseling Program

What is School Counseling?


As outlined by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA), a school counseling program is: comprehensive in scope, preventative in design and developmental in nature. So what does this mean?


  • Comprehensive in Scope:

                School Counselors focus on what all students from Kindergarten through 12th grade should know and be able to do academically, career-wise  

                and personally/socially.


  • Preventative in Design:


           The school guidance curriculum teaches specific skills and learning opportunities that serve as prevention education.


  • Developmental in Nature:


               School counselors offer programs suitable to each student's appropriate developmental levels.


School Counseling is an important part of the entire educational program. Counselors support students in three domains: academic, career and personal/social.


  • Academic:


             School counselors help children develop skills that will help them learn effectively.


  • Career:


           Counselors also help students aquire skills that will prepare them to be successful in careers later in life.


  • Personal/Social:


           Effective school counselors also help children learn social skills and teach children respect for themselves and others.
