Events for School Counselors

St. Joseph’s College hosts professional development workshops each year and encourages counseling staff to schedule a campus visit to tour the campus and learn about our admissions procedures. 

Annual College Board Fall Counselor Workshop

This event is facilitated by the College Board and hosted on the Long Island Campus of St. Joseph’s College. This event traditionally takes place in September. Details and registration information will be posted when the date is announced. Additional information is available on the College Board site.

Annual Counselor Workshop

Each year St. Joseph’s College invites a guest speaker to highlight a particular topic of interest to school counselors. This event is a free professional development opportunity and includes lunch and time for networking with colleagues. Previous topics have included teen drug abuse, suicide prevention and cyberbullying. The event is usually held in December and the date is announced in the fall. This year's event will be held on December 1, 2017 at the Melville Marriott and features Nancy Jo Sales, author of American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers.
