Buffalo Grove High School Receives RAMP Designation
July 13, 2012
Buffalo Grove High School received the Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) designation from the American School Counselor Association during a special ceremony at the ASCA’s annual conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 25. The 2012 RAMP recipients traveled from all over the United States, and Buffalo Grove was one of four schools to receive this award from Illinois. Principal Carol Burlinski, Associate Principal Robert Hartwig, and Counselors Kathy Fox, Bill Brown, and Francesca Pecoraro attended the event where the school was honored for establishing an outstanding school counseling program.
The RAMP designation, awarded to schools whose counseling programs align with the criteria set in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive school counseling program and creating an exemplary educational environment. The ASCA National Model provides a framework surrounding the areas of college and career, academics, and personal/social development. This twelve-step, data-driven process towards national recognition has not only aligned the B.G.H.S. counseling program to national standards, but it has strengthened the collaboration with teachers, parents, administrators, and the community to provide the most qualitative developmental program for our students.
