School Counselor's Role


What does a School Counselor do?

School counselors provide a comprehensive school counseling program that improves student achievement and enhances the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. The comprehensive school counseling program is delivered through individual and group counseling, classroom lessons, and individual student planning sessions. School counselors collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators and other school staff to promote student success. School counselors also provide leadership and advocacy to promote equity and access to opportunities and rigorous educational experiences for all students.

Counselors in the school setting have Master's Degrees. They can help students individually or in small groups with a variety of issues such as divorce, self-esteem, anger-management, attention deficit disorders, study skills, behavioral issues, depression, anxiety, and grief.
