Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model

The goal of the school counseling program is to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in school and beyond. This is done by putting in place prevention measures to teach students skills in three domains: personal/social, academic, and career. School Counselors are always asking students to answer three essential questions: Who am I? Where am I going? How will I get there?  Students are encouraged to use the answers to these questions to guide their decision making. While school counseling is a K-12 continuum, there are some differences between the levels. See below for more information about each specific level.
