"What is a school Counselor?"

Then: In the past, we used the term "Guidance Counselor" because counselors "guided" students towards their college and career by providing letters of recommendation, sending out transcripts, etc.Now: School counselors are highly trained professionals providing a comprehensive preventative program that supports ALL students' academic, personal-social, and career needs.

A School Counselor's primary responsibility is to promote all students' academic, career, and social/emotional development by developing a Comprehensive School Counseling Program. School Counseling Programs help learners develop learning strategies, self-management, and social skills for lifelong success.

Elementary School Counseling Program

Students and caretakers can reach out to their counselor anytime with personal, social, or career questions! We can provide a variety of tools to help students achieve their goals. We can provide brief short-term counseling.

The elementary school counselors will run small groups with 6 to 10 students on various topics as an intervention for certain students. Small groups allow students to relate, learn and develop positive relationships with other students who may be struggling with the same issues. Past small group topics included self-regulation, coping skills, self-esteem, and grief.*Please be sure to read the monthly Counselors Corner newsletter for future announcements on groups*

There will be time for learners to chat with each other and participate in games or activities facilitated by one the School Counselors, according to grade.

Throughout the school year, there will be "Drop-in Days" with the school counselor that can be added to your learner's Edio calendars. These drop-in days will be large group lessons on different social, emotional, and career readiness topics throughout the school year.

Hello Caretakers and Learners, and Welcome Back!I hope you all had a fun and relaxing summer vacation! I’m glad to introduce myself as your school counselor this year. This will be my third year as an elementary school counselor at CCA and I feel so lucky to be working with you all. My hope is that this year will be filled with opportunities to strengthen skills and make connections through different counseling activities. Throughout the school year, school counselors meet with students in many different ways; one-on-one, in smaller groups, in larger group lessons, and by discussing resources that can be helpful for specific questions or needs. I will also be sharing these monthly newsletters under the Announcements section on your Learner’s Edio page. This is where you can find continuous information on what’s to come from our counseling department throughout the year. Excited for a great year with you all!
