Drive your school counseling program to the next level. Show your administrators, school board and the community at large that you're committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program by becoming a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP). Take a look at the Top 10 Reasons to RAMP. 

How Do I Know If I'm Ready? 
Use the program assessment tool to see if you've got a true comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program.

What's Involved in Applying? 
Learn about the full application process (third edition or fourth edition). The RAMP application isn't something your team starts and finishes in a single weekend but rather the culmination of a full year's work. See a suggested monthly checklist to get a feel for the process.

I Need More Help
Team up with a RAMP coach for extra help in applying for RAMP. A RAMP coach works with your team throughout the year online to help you through the whole process. Learn more about hiring a coach. Or, if numerous schools in your district are working toward RAMP at the same time, consider on-site training.
