Who are Elementary School Counselors?

Elementary school counselors are master-degree level professionals who provide a school counseling program to support students, staff, parents and the community.  School Counselors are trained to develop a program that is comprehensive, developmental, and preventive.  The program focuses on services that address the academic, personal/social, and college/career development of our students.
