Enroll in a college preparatory curriculum to prepare for the
college degrees required of guidance counselors. You should take
courses in humanities, social studies, and psychology. Courses in
mathematics are important, because mathematical and statistical
theory underlie much of the standardized testing program. Computer
science and Internet research courses will help you manage student
records and easily access information on the Internet. You should
take English and speech courses because both written and spoken
communication with students, parents, and administrators are key
components to this occupation. Taking a foreign language, such as
Spanish, will help you to work with students who do not speak
English as a first language.
