The Counseling Program

The Lafayette Parish Professional School Counseling Program has undergone many changes over the past decades.  Traditional descriptions of school counselors often include "guidance counselor" or "vocational counselor".  Counseling in these forms has expanded to address today's  changing society.  Many of the nation's issues can be addressed through prevention and early intervention.  Lafayette Parish Professional School Counselors continue to define new directions for their profession as they align their program with The American School Counselor Association National Model (ASCA).  More than ever, comprehensive counseling is critical to help prepare students to meet the challenges of the future. The Lafayette Parish comprehensive school program is designed to meet the needs of every student.


School Counselors provide classroom instruction, participate in curriculum development, conduct group activities and present parent workshops.


School Counselors help students establish personal goals and develop future plans.  They also help students monitor and manage their own learning as well as meet competencies in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development.


School Counselors meet student's immediate needs and concerns through individual/group counseling, consultation, referrals, peer facillitation or information. Additionally, crisis counseling provides support, intervention and follow-up assistance to students and families facing emergency situation.


School Counselors manage activities that establish, maintain and enhance the total school counseling program. Professional development, consultation, collaboration and program management are components of system support.
