What Does the School Counselor Do?

As the school counselor, I provide students with support in three areas:

Academic Development

  • Effective learning in school and across the life span
  • Academic preparation for postsecondary options
  • Relationships of academics, work, family, and community life

Career Development

  • Investigations of the world of work to make informed decisions
  • Strategies to achieve future career goals
  • Relationships of personal qualities, education, training, and work

Personal/Social Development

  • Interpersonal skills to respect self and others
  • Decision making, setting goals, and taking action to achieve goals
  • Understanding everyday safety and survival skills
