WHAT IS A SCHOOL COUNSELOR?
A certified, highly-qualified, [minimum] master's-level professional counselor who addresses developmental needs of all students in the areas of academic, career, personal/social while at the same time, working collaboratively with educators, families, and the community. (State Model Task Force, June 2009)

MISSION
The West Virginia School Counseling Program is based on the American School Counselor Association National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs. The mission for West Virginia school counseling programs is to focus on academic, career and personal/social development to ensure that every student benefits from a program that is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design and developmental in nature. The majority of the school counselor's time is spent in direct services to students, imparting specific skills and learning opportunities in a proactive manner. School counselors will collaborate with the full education team, advocate to improve student learning, and lead efforts for systemic change.
