About

The University of La Verne’s School Counseling program prepares candidates to become holistic, academically well-prepared leaders, advocates and social agents in education and the larger community.

Overview

Our program supports a culture of caring that includes a strong commitment to equity across the academic, career, personal, and social domains defined by the National Standards for School Counseling.

Emphasis is placed on social justice, mindfulness, creativity, excellence and community involvement with community action research components embedded throughout the coursework. Candidates are trained as advocates, as well as collaborators with families, other educators, and the global community. Through this program, candidates will increase their capacity for critical thinking and self-reflection. They will develop the courage and skills to challenge biases and stereotypes, to appreciate diversity, and become transformative leaders in schools and communities.

To provide maximum convenience and flexibility, the program is available at several locations throughout California, including La Verne, Bakersfield, Burbank, College of the Canyons, Irvine, Oxnard, and Victorville.
