School Counseling UG '15 GR'20
School Couselor, TechBoston Academy

My experience in the program was amazing! I went to Assumption for undergrad, so it felt like home.

My time as a DCF social worker assisting families, as well as overseeing an IFC (Intensive Foster Care) program has given me insight into students in foster care placement. These experiences have helped me gain a better understanding of the school counseling field.

Assumption has provided me with the required practical skills and hands on experience in the field.

Your experience depends on what you put into it. Seek out mentors. Come in early, stay late, make connections. My experience at Assumption aided in my success.

Everything about the program is designed to ensure your success as an expert counselor.

"This program is at the leading edge of producing modern school counselors who have the knowledge and experience to be leaders in the profession. The professors offered a nurturing approach to teaching and mentorship, combined with tremendous knowledge and experience."

Assumption’s program is about where school counseling is going, not about where it has been.

I consult with schools to assess and implement systemic enhancements in the school counseling program. I’m certain I was hired because I earned my master’s from a program that is a model for modern school counseling and the use of data to measure results.

Adjustment Counselor, Maynard High School

Assumption helped me get to where I wanted in my career.

Enrolling at Assumption for my CAGS was incredibly helpful, you get a top-notch education in a comfortable, friendly environment. I was able to take the courses I needed to get my additional license and the program was flexible so I could complete it on my own terms.

Assumption University has played a significant role in my success.

I thoroughly enjoyed my education and praise all the professors that I have had throughout my many years studying at Assumption. The professors are very dedicated and willing to help each student. Assumption’s professors want everyone to succeed.
