What is School Counseling?

School Counselors are trained professionals who are credentialed by the state (similar to teachers) in the area of school counseling.

School counseling is meant to encourage students' academic, social, emotional, and personal development through providing a variety of services on a school campus.

Through classroom guidance, small groups, individual services, and daily interactions on campus, school counseling aims to help students get to know themselves better, understand and manage emotions, find strategies to be successful academically, and to have a toolbox full of tools and solutions for managing daily challenges and problems that may arise.
