Questions on Becoming a High School Guidance Counselor?

Question by i love you <3 :]: Questions on becoming a high school guidance counselor?
I am a highschool freshman looking into a career as a High School Guidance Counselor, and I have a few questions.

1) How many years of college/university does it take to become a guidance counselor?
2) What courses/majors should I take and/or look into?
3) I’ve been looking into Villanova University in Pennsylvania, have any counselors attended Villanova? What did you think of it? What courses did you take? How was life on campus?

Any advice, details, or information would be thoroughly appreciated. Thank you. <3 Best answer:

LOL. You want to pay 40k a year at Villanova to become a guidance counselor? To be honest, I don’t even think a guidance counselor would need a college education, I don’t even think a major exists for this job. I mean you probably would need to go to college just to put it on your resume, but the only thing my counselor did for me was schedule my classes, and help me out with applying to colleges (letting me know my chances at certain schools, sending transcripts and essays). If you consider Villanova a school where you would like to attend, you must be pretty effin smart since Villanova is an excellent school.
