JCPS Counselors: Touching Hearts, Changing Lives

School counselors provide a comprehensive school counseling program that improves student achievement and enhances the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. The comprehensive school counseling program is delivered through classroom lessons, individual student planning sessions, and individual and group counseling. School counselors collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators, and other school staff to promote student success. School counselors also provide leadership and advocacy to promote equity and access to opportunities and rigorous educational experiences for all students.

We encourage parents and students to talk to their school counselor if they need assistance, to plan for the future, or to stay on track in school. The school counselor is there to advocate for students and to remove barriers to academic success. For additional information about what school counselors do and the services they provide, click here.
