Academic Development

  • Professional school counselors everywhere proudly share the same simple vision — to prepare today’s students to become tomorrow’s adults. ASCA National Standards for academic development guide school counseling programs to implement strategies and activities to support and maximize each student’s ability to learn.  (ASCA National Standards for Students, 2004)

    The academic standards serve as a guide for the school counseling program to implement strategies and activities that support and maximize student learning.

    These include:

    -  Acquiring skills, attitudes, and knowledge to learn effectively;

    -  Employing strategies to achieve success in school; and

    -  Understanding the relationship of academics to the world of work, and to life at home and in the community.
