The Tennessee School Counseling Student Standards describe the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and experiences that students need to achieve academic success, social and emotional development, and college and career readiness.

The standards are organized in three broad domains: academic development, social and emotional development, and college and career readiness. These domains promote the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and experiences that enhance the learning process and create a culture of college and career readiness for all students. The definitions of each domain are as follows:

  1. Academic Development: Standards guiding school counseling programs to implement strategies and activities to support and maximize each student’s ability to learn.
  2. Social and Emotional Development: Standards guiding school counseling programs to help students manage emotions and learn and apply appropriate interpersonal skills.
  3. College and Career Readiness: Standards guiding school counseling programs to help students understand the connection between school and the world of work and to plan for and make a successful transition from school to postsecondary education and the work force.
