What do school counselors do?
School counselors are professional educators trained to provide a systematic, planned approach for helping all students acquire skills necessary for successful academic, career, social and emotional development.

Professional school counselors advocate and care for students, and are important members of the educational team. They consult and collaborate with teachers, administrators, and families to help all students be successful academically, vocationally, and personally. Professional school counselors positively impact the futures of students on a daily basis.  School counselors are on the front lines of helping all young people succeed.

The online Master of Education with a specialization in School Counseling provides the academic foundation for the Texas Professional School Counselor certification. Graduates of this program meet the academic requirements of licensure as LPC in the State of Texas.
