The School Counseling program is an integral piece of the overall educational process. School Counselors provide a comprehensive program that supports students’ academic, personal, social/emotional and career development. Growth and learning are developmental; therefore, guidance must be developmental and sequential. The need for guidance begins with pre-school entrance and continues throughout life.
The Comprehensive School Counseling Program is a K-12 developmental program that is concerned with all students while recognizing the fact that individuals have needs that will continue to require special attention. As a result, the comprehensive guidance program is for all students and becomes developmental rather than crisis-oriented.
