What is a School Counselor?


A school counselor is a resource for students, parents, and educators.  The school counselor’s main role is to assist students with academic, career, and personal/social development through large group, small group, and individual guidance and counseling.  The comprehensive guidance plan provides guidelines for the school counselor and specific frameworks established by the Florida Department of Education. You can access Belmont Academy’s Comprehensive Guidance Plan by clicking on the document below.


The school counselor assists students with academic development by teaching study techniques, test anxiety management.  The focus of career development is career awareness, career planning, career skills, and post-secondary plans.  Personal/social development is learning how to interact with others, individually and in a group, learning soft skills for career success, and crisis counseling.
