The field of school counseling promotes all students' academic success in a K-12 school setting, specifically focusing on three primary domains: academic, career, and personal/social learning. School counselors strive to collaborate with all members of a school community, including administrators, teachers, parents, community, and other support staff, to advocate for the needs of each student and create a safe and supportive school culture. School counselors act as key members of the educational team and help lead school transformation by adhering to accountability standards, following ethical codes, providing leadership, and developing a comprehensive school counseling program for all students. Each state has its own certification requirements for school counselors, but specialized training is required in each state.
