Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) - Super Bowl of Counseling

RAMP stands for Recognized ASCA Model Program

*ASCA is American School Counselor Association

This distinction remains with our campus for the next five years!


The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools committed to delivering a data-informed school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. (from ASCA press release)


“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Clark, ASCA executive director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success. RAMP designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence.” (from ASCA press release)


RAMP applications are reviewed once a year by a panel of school counseling professionals, who assess the school counseling programs in 10 different areas of expertise.
