ASCA Awards RAMP Designation to Flagstaff High School

For immediate release – April 14th

ALEXANDRIA, VA. – The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) is pleased to announce Flagstaff High School in Flagstaff, AZ as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP).

The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering an exemplary school counseling program. Honorees are awarded for aligning their program with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, a framework for a data-informed school counseling program. Since the program’s inception, more than 900 schools earned the RAMP designation. Research findings indicate fully implemented comprehensive school counseling programs are associated with a range of positive student educational and behavioral outcomes. Flagstaff High School is one of five programs that have been designated in Arizona.

“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success. The RAMP designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence.”

The Flagstaff High School School Counseling Department will be honored at a recognition ceremony at ASCA’s annual conference in Seattle, Wash., on June 29, 2020.

RAMP applications are reviewed once a year. The next submission deadline is Oct. 15, 2020. For more information on the program, visit
