Professional School Counselors utilize leadership, advocacy and collaboration to promote academic and personal success for all students. We are “certified/licensed educators with the minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling and are uniquely qualified to address the developmental needs of all students through a school counseling program addressing the academic, career and social/ emotional development of all students”.
