Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP)

Published: 8/2/2022 3:56 AM


What is RAMP? 

The Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) recognizes schools committed to delivering comprehensive, data-informed school counseling programs. These programs, which align with the ASCA National Model, exemplify school counseling at its best. 

Why RAMP? 

​Advocating for yourself and your program is imperative to show all stakeholders the impact you have on your students, staff, and community! RAMP will showcase your school as a nationally-recognized counseling program and includes MANY benefits!

How do I know if my program is ready? 

ASCA provides this self-assessment tool to determine if your program is ready for RAMP.  The entire process is based on the ASCA National Model Implementation Guide, 2nd Edition.  This is a great resource to help you get started. 

Process of RAMP 

Applying for RAMP is a marathon, not a sprint.  

  • Applicatio​ns are due by October 15th each year.  

  • Your counseling team will use the ASCA monthly checkli​st to ensure you are staying up to date with the yearlong process. 

  • The scoring rubric focuses on 10 components of a comprehensive counseling program.
