Counseling Services

CREA provides comprehensive direct counseling services for K-12 schools due to a shortage of available counselors in order to fulfill state mandated student counseling requirements.​ Our Program is dedicated to providing students academic, career, and social/personal growth lessons throughout the school year. 

CREA partnered with the University of Mary in 2016 to create the Counseling Internship program. This program provides a paid internship for graduate students. Now in our fifth year, our Counseling Program, with a full time School counselor and 3 interns, provide lessons for 897 students.


Counseling Program 



The CREA school counseling program covers the college, career, and life readiness skills that all students need, and follows the American School Counseling Association’s Mindsets and Behaviors (school counseling standards) that focus on academic, career, and social/emotional development. Regular classroom lessons are provided to help students learn important knowledge, skills, and behaviors needed to succeed in school and life, as well as to help prevent problems like bullying. Individual and small group counseling are also offered to address more serious challenges/issues as needed. Additionally, the program ensures that state college and career planning requirements are met, including student interest inventories, four year plans, and test interpretation.
