Tennessee School Counseling Association

School counselors are uniquely trained professionals who serve as mental health professionals in public and private PreK-12 grade schools throughout Tennessee. Through direct counseling services, consultation and collaboration, leadership, and advocacy, school counselors improve academic achievement, promote positive social/emotional development, and ensure college/career readiness for all students. They are change agents who make a measurable difference for students, schools, and communities.

The Tennessee School Counseling Association (TnSCA) is the state professional association for practicing school counselors, graduate students in school counseling, school counselor educators, and interested others. Your membership in TnSCA supports advocacy for the school counseling profession across the state and contributes to your own professional growth through professional development, networking opportunities, and exclusive consultation services.
