The purpose of this paper is to explore the field of high school guidance counseling as a vocation. The discussion includes information regarding guidance counseling in the United States in general and Arkansas specifically. The personal and educational requirements for guidance counseling are discussed as well as the requirements for establishing an adequate counseling program in a high school.

Counseling procedures and problems are included because counseling is one of the basic responsibilities of the guidance counselor; however, these areas are discussed only generally. A detailed study would constitute a separate paper.
