Helpful resources for school counselors?

My school counselor is amazing, but I know she's overwhelmed by the number of students she has to work with. I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for resources that can help school counselors with their workload or provide additional support for students during the college admissions process?

It's thoughtful of you to consider how to help your school counselor manage their workload! There are several resources available that can support both school counselors and students during the college admissions process.

1. CollegeVine: CollegeVine is an online platform offering various tools and resources for students navigating the college admissions process. It provides guidance on college lists, essays, financial aid, and more. Encourage your classmates to sign up for a free account to have access to these resources, which can ease the workload on your school counselor.

2.. College websites: College websites often have sections dedicated to resources for educators and counselors. Rather than always asking your counselor about anything you're confused about, explore the resources provided by college websites, such as guides, webinars, and enrollment toolkits.

3. American School Counselor Association (ASCA): ASCA is a professional organization for school counselors that offers various resources, like webinars, themed toolkits, and professional development opportunities. If your counselor isn't a member, consider suggesting that they join for access to these resources.

4. Suitable Financial Aid resources: Understanding the financial aid process is vital for students and counselors. Check out resources such as FAFSA's official website or CSS Profile by the College Board to help yourself better understand the process and gather information more efficiently.

By also sharing these resources with your school counselor and fellow students, you can help distribute the workload, allowing your counselor to focus on providing personalized guidance during the college admissions process.
