What is school counseling?

The mission of comprehensive school counseling in Oregon is to provide developmental and systematic support to each and every student to ensure the academic, career, social/emotional development and achievement, and support participation in the broader community. Comprehensive School Counseling Programs (CSCPs) are proactive and preventative. CSCPs enhance learning by assisting students to acquire critical skills for lifelong learning and success. CSCPs embrace professional standards and models for best practice in the field. Comprehensive school counseling programs provide an array of interventions and supports for students. These are delivered collaboratively with school staff, families, and members of the community to provide seamless transitions to each student’s next steps. The goal is that each student will leave the pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade system with the skills and knowledge to live, learn, work, and contribute in both local and global communities.
