Building Mindsets and Skills for Student Success

The Catalina Foothills School District school counseling program is based on the American School Counselor’s Association (ASCA) National Model (4thedition). The purpose of the program, like the ASCA National Model, is to create one vision for school counseling in the district. 

Our school counseling program is proactive and preventive.  It is an integral and essential component of the overall educational program, and provides all students the opportunity for optimum development. Developmental and systematic programming are provided to support each student’s academic, career, and social/emotional development and achievement. 

The ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success describe the knowledge, skills, and attitudes students need to achieve academic success, college and career readiness, and social/emotional development. They guide the planning and delivery of all student activities and interventions in the academic, social/emotional, and career domains. These domains promote mindsets and behaviors that enhance the learning process and create a culture of college and career readiness for all students. 

Academic Development: Strategies and activities that support and maximize each student’s ability to learn, and to successfully attain requirements for graduation and postsecondary pathways.

Social/Emotional Developmen: Strategies and interventions that help students manage emotions and learn and apply interpersonal skills in a safe, inclusive learning environment.

Career Development: Strategies and activities that help students 1) understand their individual strengths, abilities, and challenges in order to establish tentative career and educational goals, 2)understand the connection between school and the world of work, and 3) plan for and make a successful transition from school to postsecondary education and or career pathways, and from job to job across the life span.

School counselors implement a developmentally based program offering instruction in areas such as:

• Peer group interaction

• Cooperation

• Transitions

• Self-Regulation

• Conflict resolution

• New student adjustments

• Changing families

• Friendship and social skills

• Grief and loss

Additionally, each counselor is available to support parents, students, and staff with problem solving and community referrals.
