Awards Received by the CHS School Counseling Department

The RAMP (Recognized ASCA Model Program) award:

The RAMP designation, awarded to schools that align with the criteria set in the American School Counseling Association’s National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program in an exemplary educational environment. To date, more that 180 schools nationwide have been designated as RAMP award winners since the program started in 2003. The Clinton High School Counseling Department initially received this award in 2003 and they have qualified for it again in 2012.

The John L. Thompson Award for Excellence in School Counseling:

This award was presented to the department at the 2008 Iowa School Counseling Association’s annual conference in November. John L. Thompson was a former school counselor whose family presents an award to a school counselor or program each year in memory of him. The CHS School Counseling Department was awarded this honor for their C.H.A.R.G.E. program which is an acronym for Clinton High’s Active Response to Graduating Everyone.
