The school counseling program at Spokane Valley Tech is modeled based on recommendations from the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) framework. The school counseling program at SVT aims to serve every student with a particular focus in the areas of academic counseling and planning, social and emotional support, and college and career readiness.
The following is adapted from ASCA.  Learn more at
School counselors design and deliver school counseling programs that improve student outcomes. “The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs” outlines the components of a school counseling program that is integral to the school’s academic mission and is created to have a significant positive impact on student achievement, attendance, and discipline.

The ASCA National Model guides school counselors in the development of school counseling programs that:
  • are based on data-informed decision making
  • are delivered to all students systematically
  • include a developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on the mindsets and behaviors all students need for postsecondary readiness and success
  • close achievement and opportunity gaps
  • result in improved student achievement, attendance, and discipline
