Why study Professional School Counseling?
Student enrollment in U.S. schools — from kindergarten through college — continues to surge. As a result, there’s an ongoing nationwide demand for licensed professional school counselors.
In fact, the American School Counselor Association recommends a ratio of one school counselor for every 200 to 250 students, but the current ratio in U.S. schools hovers around one school counselor per 471 students. That’s less than half the number deemed sufficient. This is where you could make an immediate impact in the lives of today’s school-aged children and young adults.
