The Department of School Counseling and School Psychology offers programs that equip professionals with insight into the myriad of forces that impact young students. Graduates are then better able to communicate with students and families as they facilitate the learning process for children. Learn more about the department and our faculty.

As a resource for ongoing research, training, and education for APU faculty and students, the department partners with the Community Counseling Centers.
