School Counselor vs. Guidance Counselor
Historically, the term “guidance counselor” was used to refer to counselors working in the schools. This term has evolved to “school counselor” as the scope of duties has changed and evolved. Although some schools still used the outdated “guidance counselor” term, the Pennsylvania School Counselors Association encourages the use of “school counselor” to more accurately reflect the role.
The Pennsylvania School Counselors Association is the premiere association in the Keystone State that represents school counselors across Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania School Counselors Association is the keystone that strengthens the image and influence of professional school counselors through advocacy, leadership, collaboration, and systemic change. PSCA empowers professional school counselors with the knowledge, skills, and resources, to promote student success in the global community.
The mission of the Pennsylvania School Counselors Association is to expand the image and influence of professional school counselors, to promote professional and ethical practice, and to advocate for equity and access for all students.
