    This year, 69 schools in 19 states received the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation. These schools will be honored during a special ceremony at the American School Counselor Association’s Annual Conference for making an exemplary commitment to their school counseling programs.

    The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-informed school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Since the program’s inception, nearly 1,200 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients.

    This year, Virginia leads the number of RAMP designations, with 10 schools in the state receiving the honor. Thirteen schools, in California, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Virginia, will receive the RAMP School of Distinction award, honoring schools with exceptionally high-caliber school counseling programs based on rankings determined by a panel of RAMP reviewers. RAMP-designated schools are now in 47 states across the country. The RAMP designation is good for five years, after which time schools must reapply to maintain their RAMP status. This year 21 schools earned Re-RAMP status.

    “This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, 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.”
