Core School Counseling provides web-based, asynchronous instruction for creating a comprehensive school counseling program. This free system aligns to but does not teach the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model nor does it prepare schools for submitting a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) application. By enrolling in Core, enrollee understands that aggregate information entered into the web-based system may be used for research and analysis purposes. Enrollee-specific information is confidential. Data and information entered by the enrollee may be retained in the web-based system indefinitely. Enrollees may progress to RAMP Ready during open enrollment periods.
