*THIS COURSE IS UNDER REVISION AND WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON*
Welcome to College Preparation & Selection, the tenth course in the series The Role of the School Counselor.
While teachers, administrators, staff, coaches and mentors will influence the decisions that students make during their high school years, it is the role of the school counselor to oversee each student’s career and college plan and support them in completing a challenging course schedule that will help to identify and meet their goals.
The counselor has many duties in this regard. Just a few include keeping records of classes and grades, helping to plan courses that will meet graduation and college entry requirements, connecting students with information that will guide their choices, and helping to make sense of the many admissions requirements they must consider.
College admission requirements are more stringent than high school graduation requirements. Making sure that all students have the opportunity to participate in a college preparation academic program requires insight, encouragement, and the ability to assist students in creating appropriate expectations as well as a higher level of self-awareness.
This course should take 12-16 hours of study time to complete all assignments and the reflection questions as directed. There are three written assignments including the reflection questions at the end of the course.
