King and Queen County Public Schools
School Counseling Program
King and Queen Public Schools offer a comprehensive school counseling program that is aligned with Virginia standards and the ASCA National Model, ensuring that all students, pre‐K through grade 12, receive:
Academic counseling, which assists students and their parents/guardians to acquire knowledge of the curricula choices available to students, to plan a program of studies, to arrange and interpret academic testing, and to seek post‐ secondary academic opportunities.
Career counseling, which helps students acquire information and plan for post‐ secondary education and career opportunities.
Social/emotional counseling, which assists students to develop an understanding of themselves, the rights and needs of others, how to resolve conflict, and how to define individual goals reflecting their interests, abilities, and aptitudes.
In collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators and other school and community members, students may receive direct services from the school counselor such as the classroom counseling curriculum, small group counseling, short-term individual counseling, crisis response, and individual student planning. Counselors may also work with students to complete screenings or other measurement tools to collect school counseling specific data for the purpose of identifying and supporting student needs.
AmeriCorps college advisers are also available at the high school level and perform the following functions:
Provide one-on-one admissions and financial-aid advice to any student or family seeking assistance
Encourage each student to consider a broad range of appropriate college choices
Develop for each student a comprehensive college timeline, including application deadlines for
admission and financial aid
Help each student complete and submit admissions and financial-aid applications
Assist each student in interpreting correspondence from colleges, including offers of admission and financial aid.
If you, as parents/guardians, have questions about the school counseling program or wish to review materials used in the program, please contact your school counselor.
