Sprayberry High, Varner Elementary Earn American School Counselor Association RAMP Designation

This year, 78 schools in 23 states received the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation. Two Cobb Schools made the list: Sprayberry High School and Varner Elementary School. 

These schools will be honored during a special ceremony at the American School Counselor Association’s Annual Conference for making an exemplary commitment to their school counseling programs.  

The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools committed to delivering a data-informed school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment.  

Since the program’s inception, nearly 1,000 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients, including numerous Cobb schools.  

The RAMP designation is good for five years, after which time schools must reapply to maintain their RAMP status.  

“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success. RAMP designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence.”
