The American Counseling Association (ACA) has partnered with Michelle Obama's Reach Higher initiative, which supports the critical work of school counselors in preparing students to complete their education past high school.
As a direct result of that partnership, we have developed a new School Counselor Connection webpage
to serve as a resource clearinghouse for all counseling professionals engaged in the work of advancing students' post-secondary success.
Explore Professional Development and Training options, review Innovative Programming and Research resources, and gain direct access to College and Career Counseling Tools such as the College Scorecard, a State Academic Performance and Improvement Tool, and more.
It's easy to get involved! Through the School Counselor Connection webpage
you can also learn how to participate in the #ReachHigher photo campaign as well as the First Lady's FAFSA Completion Challenge.
ACA is committed to school counselors. Please feel free to contact us
directly with any questions or feedback about this important initiative.
Special thanks and appreciation to Jasmine Mcleod, one of ACA’s 2014 Scholars-in-Residence
and contributor to the School Counselor Connection webpage. Jasmine is a Professional School Counselor and currently serves as an Instructional Systems Specialist for School Counseling & Psychology at DoDEA schools.
