School Counseling and Guidance
The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) along with the New York State School Counseling Association (NYSSCA) affirms that school counseling is an integral part of the overall educational experience. Syracuse City School District’s school counselors are committed to providing all students with a comprehensive school counseling program which systematically addresses the three areas of academic, career, and personal/social development. It is our belief that in doing so, we assist students in exploring, planning, and realizing their individual interests, abilities, and goals, thus helping them to reach their full potential as productive members of society.
