The current chapter defines and explores the role of social class in school counseling. We first define social class and the role of classism from student and counselor perspectives with particular attention to urban schools and how social class intersects with academic achievement, students' school and home negotiations, and the impact on students' academic trajectories. A case of a Samoan student is presented to highlight key constructs and illustrate specific school counseling interventions and techniques (e.g., ecological asset-mapping). The chapter also examines social class and how it informs the role of the school counselor and schools as cultural communities. The chapter concludes with specific suggestions for school counseling research, training, and practice as well as future questions in the field.

Keywords: school counseling; social class; ecological asset-mapping; urban schools; school counselor; classism
