Curriculum

Adams 12 Five Star Schools has a counseling curriculum that aligns with state legislation, Colorado’s Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP); and national school counseling standards developed by the American School Counseling Association (ASCA).  It offers opportunities for students to explore careers and college, strengthen academic skills, and provides supports for social and emotional development.

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model is endorsed by all school counselors in Adams 12 Five Star Schools.  ASCA provides school counselors with the ability to develop and implement a comprehensive school counseling program. All of the ASCA student standards fall into three domains of development: academic, career and social emotional.  School counselors work with students individually, in small groups, and in classrooms to deliver curriculum and foster their sense of success and well-being.

The Individual Career and Academic Plan (ICAP) is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and postsecondary opportunities.  With the support of adults, students develop the awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and skills to create their own meaningful and powerful pathways to be career and college ready. Students’ store their ICAP plans in Naviance where they have access to it anytime.
