The 4 Components of a Comprehensive School Counseling Program
Foundation- Establishes the focus of the comprehensive school counseling program based on academic, career, and personal/social needs of the students in the school (ASCA National Model: Third Edition, 2012).
Management- Provides organizational assessments and tools designed to manage and evaluate a school counseling program based on student needs (ASCA National Model: Third Edition, 2012).
Delivery- Focuses on implementing the school counseling program to students through the use of direct and indirect services to promote student achievement, equity, and access (ASCA National Model: Third Edition, 2012).
Accountability- The ability of school counselors to monitor and evaluate the program, students, and themselves and determine the program's effectiveness (ASCA National Model: Third Edition, 2012).
