Alabama School Counselor Salary

Typically, Alabama school counselors will earn a higher salary than teachers working in the same school. Similar to teachers, however, is the school counselor’s ability to increase their salaries with the acquisition of further education and may also supplement their income by working over the summer months.

The Bureau of Labor and Statistics is where we have acquired our salary statistics for counselors in Alabama. While a wonderful resource for statistics across the country, the BLS has failed to create such targeted salary statistics for school counselors in the state of Alabama.
