The Washington School Counselor Association is a chartered state division of the American School Counselor Association in addition to being a part of the Washington Counseling Association. WSCA represents certificated School Counselors who work in public and private schools at all levels.

Membership in WSCA provides an opportunity for counselors to work with others in their profession to seek answers to their questions and a
sounding board for their concerns.

The primary goal of WSCA is to promote school counseling and to advocate for the profession.

WSCA holds an annual Conference to provide training in current counseling topics and publishes a regular newsletter.

Through appointed committees, WSCA works on issues such as multicultural training, fairness in testing, developmental counseling, crisis response, special education and disability issues, government relations, and professional education.

WSCA members sit on Professional Education Advisory Boards for the various graduate programs in School Counseling in Washington.

WSCA members work with agencies such as the Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington State Legislature to promote children’s issues. WSCA works with professional organizations that represent School Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Physical and Occupational Therapists, and Speech and Language Pathologists on shared issues.
