The Role of the School Counselor

  • School counselors are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development.
  • School counselors help parents focus on ways to further the educational, personal, and social growth of students.
  • School counselors work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves.
  • School counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and compliment comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society.
  • Comprehensive school counseling programs are considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.
