Comprehensive School Counseling Program (CSCP)

  • ASCA National Model Overview


    School counselors design and deliver school counseling programs that improve student outcomes. “The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs” outlines the components of a school counseling program that is integral to the school’s academic mission and is created to have a significant positive impact on student achievement, attendance and discipline.

    The ASCA National Model guides school counselors in the development of school counsel-ing programs that:

    • are based on data-informed decision making
    • are delivered to all students systematically
    • include a developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on the mindsets and behaviors all students need for postsecondary readiness and success
    • close achievement and opportunity gaps
    • result in improved student achievement, attendance and discipline
