About School Counseling at NAPLS

  • School counselors at New Albany-Plain Local Schools play a vital role in the lives of our students. School counseling also looks different from building to buidling. For example, at New Albany High School counseling is focused on college and career choices, scheduling of classes and career pathway exploration in addition to social emotional well-being. At other buildings, counselors are focused on the social and emotional needs of students, positive behavioral reinforcement and more. It can be as simple as helpiing student to make good choices.
