Our school counseling program meets the holistic needs of our students in order to affect improved academic, social-emotional, and career-pathway outcomes. To achieve these outcomes, our school counseling staff aims to provide services aligned with the American School Counselor Association’s ASCA National Model - A Framework for School Counseling Programs (ASCA, 2021). This model 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 counseling 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
In taking on a more-holistic approach in order to meet the diverse needs of today’s students, West Clermont’s school counselors partner more broadly and regularly with other providers, internal and external to the school setting, with the aim of wrapping comprehensive support and services around students. This speaks to the ASCA National Model, and aligns well with the district’s renewed focus on building a Whole Child Network charged with increasing student access, participation, and progress in learning.
School counselors are located at both West Clermont Middle and High School.
