Welcome to VSCA!

Founded in 1962 , the Virginia School Counselor Association is a state chapter of the American School Counselor Association. It is the only school counselor association in the Commonwealth of Virginia solely for and by school counselors. 

VSCA Legislative Day will be Thursday, January 18th!  

We have done so much great work to define School Counselor's role and use of time, and ensure funding for school counseling positions.

This year, there are MANY brand-new legislators, and we will be focused on education and appreciation.  At this point, we are not spearheading any specific legislation, but will spend time with legislators to discuss the critical role of school counselors in supporting all of Virginia's students and supporting their success.

Shirts will be provided for those who register before December 21.
