Guidance Counselors

High School

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.
