Careers & Jobs in School Psychology

School Psychologists continue to be in high demand. Across the country, the demand for school psychologists exceeds the available supply. The employment outlook for school psychologists is predicted to remain excellent for several years, particularly given the high percentage of practicing school psychologists nearing retirement age. Further, school psychologists are (on average) higher paid than either clinical psychologists and counseling psychologists, both at the master’s degree and doctoral levels.
