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 Although some schools still used the outdated “guidance counselor” term, the Pennsylvania School Counselors Association encourages the use of “school counselor” to more accurately reflect the role.
