Effective professional development for high school counselors?

Hey all! I was wondering what are some good professional development opportunities or resources specifically for high school counselors? Are there any online workshops or conferences focused on college admissions that they should attend?

7 months ago

There are several professional development opportunities for high school counselors to enhance their skills and knowledge in college admissions. One notable organization is the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), which hosts annual conferences, workshops, and webinars covering various aspects of the admissions process. Additionally, NACAC provides resources and networking opportunities for high school counselors and other professionals in the field.

Another resource is the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), which provides specialized professional development focused on the needs of school counselors. They offer online courses, webinars, and an annual conference with a variety of sessions on college and career readiness.

Lastly, consider participating in workshops or training sessions offered by specific colleges and universities. Some institutions provide programming for high school counselors to learn more about their admissions process and policies. These opportunities not only bolster your expertise but also strengthen relationships with college admissions offices.

Keep an eye out for these events throughout the year and consider investing time in these opportunities to better support your students in the college application process.
