Building Mindsets and Skills for Student Success

School Counseling Program

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 with 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 Successdescribe 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. The "CFSD Continuum of Student Indicators for the Mindsets & Behaviors" provides a continuum of indicators at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Each indicator is correlated to the most relevant Mindsets and Behaviors, which are indicated in parentheses after each indicator.

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 Development: Strategies and interventions that help students manage emotions and learn and apply interpersonal skills.

Career Development: Strategies and activities that help students 1) understand the connection between school and career(s), and 2) 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 or small group support 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.
