Why School Counselors?

School counseling programs are collaborative efforts benefiting students, parents, teachers, administrators and the overall community and are an integral part of students' daily educational environment and academic achievement.

Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or meeting with the troublemakers in the school. Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team, helping students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/emotional development and career development. School counseling programs seek to ensure that today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
