The School Counseling Fellows Program is designed for individuals interested in pursuing a career in school counseling with a focus on school reform, specifically targeting at-risk youth in urban and/or metropolitan school districts. Those chosen for this innovative full-time program will be part of a distinguished cohort of students who will complete the 48-credit Master of Science in Counseling degree requirements in 15 months. Approved by the Maryland State Department of Education and accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), the Fellows program prepares individuals to be leaders and advocates in schools, counsel K-12 students and families, consult and collaborate with community and school stakeholders, and develop data-driven comprehensive counseling programs that promote social justice and equity in schools.

A message from Dr. Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy:
"Coming to Johns Hopkins, I have the opportunity to work with others who share my passion for social justice, systemic change, and equity in education. My school counseling internships, with senior high school boys, have helped me better understand the academic, social, and emotional development of youth in an urban school environment. The support and insight from by professors has been amazing."
