International schools' history begins in Mexico City when the first international school was founded in 1888 to provide an American curriculum to the children of US citizens residing there. As expatriates, military personnel, and missionaries spanned the globe, "international schools" have followed. Now there are 700 schools employing 35,000 professionals worldwide. As professional school counseling continues to be identified as an essential part of secondary schools, opportunities abound for professionals to guide students in their career and post secondary options, along with providing relevant and meaningful information to parents. For international schools, it is becoming increasingly important to combat college fever as the demand for US education increases. With the economic times stressing public school funds, districts continue to protect the classroom by cutting counselors. Internationally the demand for teachers and counselors with experience in school counseling, international university systems and college placement as well as career advising remains high.
