School Counseling Services


The Four Components of SC Guidance Counseling Programs:

1. Guidance Curriculum
2. Individual Planning
3. Responsive Services
4. System Support

The collective goal of all educators is to prepare students for the future by helping them realize their fullest potential. As they develop, students encounter personal, social, academic and physical challenges. These challenges can best be met with the support of caring professionals and programs designed to help students become responsible and productive citizens. School Counselors are among the educators who provide these services and programs.

The School Counseling Program of Clover School District is a proactive, comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling program for all students, pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade. Our program provides developmental opportunities and experiences that address three central student-development areas: personal/social, academic, and career. Counseling standards are set by the American School Counseling Association as well as our South Carolina and District level standards.

Clover’s Comprehensive Developmental Guidance and Counseling Program is organized into four major components: guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and system support.

The guidance curriculum component includes structured experiences presented systematically through large and small group activities. The curriculum promotes student development in the area of learning to live (personal/social), learning to learn (academic), and learning to work (career) and emphasizes such skills as decision making, self-understanding, career development, and the improvement of student skills.

The individual planning component includes counseling activities to assist all students in planning, monitoring, and managing their own academic achievement as well as their personal and career development.

The responsive services component addresses the immediate needs and concerns of students. Such services include personal counseling; crisis counseling; agency referral; consultation with parent, teacher, and other professionals; and support groups.

The system support component includes indirect guidance management activities that maintain and enhance the total guidance and counseling program.
