Are you a certified teacher with a Master's degree and interested in becoming a school counselor? The ESC - Region 19 Counselor Alternative Program (CAP) accepts applications throughout the year. Please see the CAP Program Requirements for more information.
The CAP program is intended to aid districts in filling Texas School Counselor positions with outstanding counselors who are highly trained, committed, dedicated and who have exceptional skills and empathy necessary to work with a diverse student population.
The goal of CAP is to give individuals who think with their minds and hearts a quality and realistic certification program for Texas School Counselors. Interns will leave CAP certified as Texas School Counselors All Levels. They will also leave having developed a network of contacts necessary to help our Region’s students, including the relationship developed with their mentor counselor at their respective internship campus.
The CAP program vows to continue the excellent track record to prepare, certify, and support educators and counselors to meet the staffing needs of the districts served within the region.
