  • Secondary Counselors


Welcome to the High School Counselor webpage for the Wisconsin School Counselor Association (WSCA). High School Counselors in Wisconsin are leaders in education and play an integral role in the personal/social, academic, and career development of ALL students. One of our primary goals as high school counselors is to facilitate growth within students so they can obtain the knowledge, skills, and attitudes in order to be successful with their post-secondary plans.

The purpose of this site is to provide resources for High School Counselors and share information about the position of Secondary Vice President of the Wisconsin School Counselor Association. We take great pride in our professional organization and invite you to learn more about the Governing Board and the support network that WSCA can provide. We encourage High School Counselors to contact your Secondary VP and Secondary VP Elect with questions you may have, information you would like to share, and/or ideas for presentations at our annual convention at the Madison Monona Terrace in February.
