The Elementary School Counseling Program
School counseling programs are essential for students to achieve optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set informed career goals and realize full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of the world community.
The elementary school years set the foundation for children to become healthy, competent and confident learners. They are beginning to develop decision-making, communication and life skills, as well as character values. It is also a time when students develop behaviors and mindsets toward school, self, peers, social groups and family.
Why have elementary school counselors?
Elementary school counselors collaborate with school staff, parents and the community to create a safe and respectful learning environment for all students. By providing a comprehensive school counseling program elementary school counselors help students develop social/emotional skills and strategies, achieve academic success, and begin the career exploration process.
