✦ Why Chaplains? ✦

Chaplains certified by the National School Chaplain Association go through comprehensive training to learn how to provide spiritual and emotional support without promoting a particular religious group, preaching, or proselytizing.

Chaplains are meant to work at the intersection of spirituality and mental health; they can serve as a nonjudgmental confidant for students and staff members to talk to about concerns or emotional distress.

Especially for those who feel conflicted about seeking traditional therapy, chaplains can help students and staff members work through feelings of anxiety, isolation, and depression.

✦ NSCA-Certified Chaplains ✦

With public educators' job dissatisfaction at an all-time high, the NSCA is dedicated to fostering more productive, supportive, and spiritually vibrant school cultures around the world. The organization's chaplains have proven to increase graduation rates by up to 37%, improve teacher retention and school safety, and increase students' respect for authority.

The NSCA trains its chaplains to have empathy while maintaining strong emotional stability. Schools that have incorporated an NSCA-certified chaplain into their staff have also reported a drop in teen pregnancies by up to 80%, decreased violence, bullying, and disciplinary issues, and a 36% reduction in dropouts.

An NSCA chaplain can provide counsel, prayer, and spiritual care to your school's staff, students, and their families. Your staff members can schedule one-on-one, confidential sessions with your chaplain to discuss anything they wish.
