Believing that one can be successful in postsecondary education endeavors and have a meaningful career are important goals for all students, and school counselors are well positioned to enhance these beliefs.

The CCRSI appears to have potential for core curriculum and individual student planning interventions delivered by professional school counselors to enhance these self-efficacy beliefs.
