Who are School Counselors? 

School counselors work in schools to provide students with academic, career, college, and social-emotional competencies.  The roles of school counselors expand to support the overall growth (Academically and Emotionally) of students in Lake County School.  School counselors are essential members of the school team and maximize student success.

The Essential Role of Middle School Counselors

According to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), middle school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills. They implement a school counseling program to support students through this important developmental period. The school counseling program provides education, prevention and intervention activities, which are integrated into all aspects of students’ lives. The program teaches students the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for academic, career and social/ emotional development.

Middle school counselors provide a proactive program that engages students and includes leadership, advocacy and collaboration with school staff, administration and community/family members in the delivery of programs and activities to help students achieve success. Middle school counselors also collaborate with teachers and parents on early identification and intervention of children’s academic and social/emotional needs, which is essential in removing barriers to learning and developing skills and behaviors critical for academic achievement.
