Why High School Counselors?
High school years are full of growth, promise, excitement, frustration, disappointment and hope. It is the time when students
begin to discover what the future holds for them. High school counselors have an impact on these years by implementing a
comprehensive school counseling program and collaborating with school staff, parents and the community to create a safe
and respectful learning environment. High school counselors enhance the learning process and promote academic, career
and social/emotional development. High school counseling programs are essential for students to achieve optimal personal
growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set informed career goals and realize their full academic potential to become
productive, contributing members of the world community.
High school counselors hold a master’s degree and required state certification in school counseling. Maintaining certification
includes ongoing professional development to stay current with educational reform and challenges facing today’s students.
Professional association membership enhances the school counselor’s knowledge and effectiveness.
