Alliant s School Counseling program prepares school counselors to work in elementary and secondary school settings. As schools respond to challenges associated with rapidly growing enrollments and the changing needs of a diversifying student population, the role of the school counselor has become increasingly essential. School counselors serve as student advocates and counseling support, working with other professionals within schools (teachers, school psychologists, school nurses, and more) to create positive learning environments that maximize students success. School counselors design and implement counseling programs that help to equip students to better manage emotions and behaviors, make decisions, cope with challenges, prevent and resolve conflicts, overcome learning disorders, and improve attendance. School counselors also assist students in improving self-management skills, and provide guidance toward helping students achieve future goals through appropriate career and academic counseling.
