Florida School Counselor Association
The Florida School Counselor Association (FSCA) expands the image and influence of professional school counselors through advocacy, leadership, collaboration and systemic change at the state level. FSCA empowers professional school counselors with the knowledge, skills, linkages, and resources to promote student success in the school, the home, the community, and the world.
Professional school counselors across the country and abroad all share the same vision – to do the best job they can for the students under their guidance and care. Florida is no different. Academic success alone isn’t enough to ensure today’s students are prepared to be tomorrow’s adults. They also need to focus on social/personal and emotional development.
