ACTE Joins The Council of National School Counseling and College Access Organizations 

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Council of National School Counseling and College Access Organizations, a collaborative group of national organizations representing school counselors and college access professionals, is proud to welcome to its membership, the Association for Career and Technical Education (ACTE). Founded in 1926, ACTE is the largest national education association dedicated to the advancement of education that prepares youth and adults for careers. ACTE’s mission is to provide educational leadership in developing a competitive workforce, and its broad membership of CTE professionals includes school counselors and guidance and career development professionals. 

“Ensuring students are aware of and have access to a wide range of postsecondary options is imperative,” said ACTE Deputy Executive Director Steve DeWitt. “The council and its members are dedicated to helping every student obtain the information and resources necessary to fulfill his or her full potential, and ACTE is proud to join this dedicated group of organizations in achieving this mission.”  

ACTE joins the following existing council members: American Counseling Association (ACA); ACT; American School Counselor Association (ASCA); College Advising Corps (CAC); The College Board; Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP); National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC); National College Access Network (NCAN); and The Southern Regional Education Board’s Go Alliance (SREB).  

Together, the council’s member organizations represent almost 20 million professionals, students and families, and believe in the right of every student to have access to counseling and advisement for postsecondary (career and college) preparation, access and success. The council provides a comprehensive multi-organizational, multi-institutional asset map of competencies, knowledge/skillset requirements and resources on its website. The council also identifies other concrete priorities including advocacy, research, and communication to policymakers and administrators on behalf of counseling and advising professionals.
