School Counseling from Cambridge College provides education and professional training to work with PreK-8 or 5-12 grade levels. 


School Counseling from Cambridge College features a variety of career development and experiential learning opportunities, including onsite school guidance counselor training. 

School counselors are vital members of school leadership teams who help students to access high quality educational and vocational experiences and make the best use of opportunities. School counseling also involves working with students to help guide social and emotional development, as well as college and career readiness. School counselors have a minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling, and must meet state certification and licensure standards.


Our graduates are group workers skilled in developmental guidance, and practitioners who know how to help students find their academic niche and achieve their best. They are also effective brokers of educational and community resources, skilled interpreters of assessment tools, and valuable consultants to students, parents, and staff.

Most graduates go on to careers as licensed school guidance counselors in public schools. Other career options you might pursue with a master’s degree in school counseling include working with community health organizations, going into private practice, or pursuing a doctoral degree in counseling or a related mental health field.
