School Guidance Counseling
The School Guidance Counseling Checklist is a list of all of the required documents that need to be submitted before, during, and at the end of the practicum experience. The other documents listed below are items that will be utilized and correspond with the checklist.
The Program Handbook contains the course sequence and syllabi that you will use to complete your coursework. Please review carefully as this will be the handbook from which you will copy and paste course descriptions and learning targets into your course contract template.
Our School Guidance Counseling Practicum Handbook identifies the pre-requisite document requirements to be submitted to the core faculty advisor prior to beginning the practicum experience. It also establishes the specific components of the practicum experience, including required hours and evaluation procedures. Please thoroughly review this handbook and consult with your core faculty advisor at the beginning of the term prior to your practicum.
The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) supports school counselors in their effort to help students focus on academic, personal/social and career development so they achieve success in school.
Many of our program components are based on the ASCA model. We strongly encourage our students to become members of this organization prior to beginning the practicum experience. Below is a link to the ASCA website. Please review this website as you will find valuable information about the profession that will help you in the future.
