School counselors collaborate with students at every educational stage, from elementary to high school, focusing on enhancing essential social, emotional, and academic skills, while also providing guidance in college and career development.
What is School Counseling?
School counselors are instrumental in helping students of all ages, from elementary to high school, develop essential social, emotional, and academic skills. They offer a comprehensive range of services, including classroom instruction, small group sessions, and one-on-one meetings. School counselors also collaborate closely with educators and parents to ensure students thrive academically and emotionally.
In addition to their core responsibilities, school counselors play a pivotal role in guiding students toward college and career readiness. They help students prepare for their future by offering valuable insights, resources, and guidance on educational and career pathways. This includes assisting students in exploring their interests, setting academic goals, and providing information about college applications, scholarships, and career options.
It’s essential to note that school counselors are not licensed therapists and do not provide professional counseling services. However, they are well-equipped to offer support for students’ mental health needs within the school environment and can help parents make informed decisions about seeking additional therapy when necessary.
If your child requires assistance in any of these areas, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our dedicated school counselors. They are eager to provide the necessary support and guidance to help your child succeed academically, emotionally, and in their journey toward college and career readiness.
