Jul 18, 2023

Certified chaplains can provide the emotional and spiritual support your staff and students need to thrive. The National School Chaplain Association offers a school partnership program so you can find the right chaplain for your school.

Working in education is incredibly rewarding, but, especially in today's society, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed, chronically stressed, and eventually burn out.

NSCA's certified school chaplain partnership program gives you access to a trained spiritual care provider to help foster emotional and mental well-being for your school's staff and students.

✦ The Benefits Of A Chaplain ✦

With the public education system facing major staff shortages and teacher resignations at an all-time high, NSCA's chaplain program aims to improve teacher retention and create a more supportive school culture. Chaplains are trained to promote spiritual health without preaching, proselytizing, or promoting any specific church or denomination.

Schools that have hired an NSCA-certified chaplain have reported up to a 37% increase in graduation rates, higher teacher retention, and a decrease in the need for disciplinary action due to bullying, violence, and substance abuse.

✦ NSCA's Chaplain Program ✦

NSCA's partnership program offers schools the opportunity to hire a chaplain certified to provide counseling, spiritual care, and practical community support to Pre-K through 12th-grade students and teachers. As part of their comprehensive training, NSCA chaplains learn how to provide nonjudgemental emotional support without interfering in the important work of teachers and staff.

NSCA will use its "5-Point Proved Process" for incorporating a new chaplain into your school. This involves an initial meeting where your staff and faculty members can learn about the benefits available to them through the chaplain.

Choosing to incorporate a chaplain into your staff means you'll have 24/7 access to your NSCA chaplain as needed. NSCA also provides supervision of each school chaplain by a Senior Chaplain Board to ensure the highest quality service and accountability. Your NSCA chaplain will also host voluntary one-on-one, confidential counseling sessions for interested staff and faculty members, to help mitigate feelings of overwhelm or burnout.
