From Program Coordinator, Tamisha Bouknight  & Clinical Coordinator, Laura Roberts

The Counselor Education/School Counseling (CE/SC) program at Lehman College provides outstanding K-12 professional school counseling learning in metropolitan New York City. We are New York City’s first public CE/SC program accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the only public NYC program accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). Since 1999, we are the only metropolitan New York City public CE/SC preparation program partnered with The Education Trust’s National Center for Transforming School Counseling (NCTSC).

Our part-time CE/SC program promotes closing K-12 achievement, opportunity, and attainment gaps through equity-based work with the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) National Model for School Counseling Programs, the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors, the American Counseling Association(ACA) Code of Ethics, the National Office for School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA) at the College Board, the Center for School Counseling Outcome Research (CSCOR), and the Center for Excellence in School Counseling and Leadership (CESCAL). 

Learn more about the CE/SC program on the ABOUT CE/SC page, which includes CE/SC brochure, FAQs, and testimonials. Last, apply online by the March 15 deadline (we only admit once a year for the fall semester). E-mail questions about the CE/SC program to Dr. Stuart Chen-Hayes at
