 Drew Model School Counseling Program

The primary focus of counseling and guidance programs at the elementary level is prevention.  Our goal is to help empower  our students with the self-knowledge, coping, and life skills that will enable them to become self-directed learners, clear and effective communicators, creative problem solvers, collaborative workers, and involved, responsible citizens of our community.
Drew Model School Counseling Program is comprised of four major program components:
  • Counseling Curriculum
  • Individual  Student Planning
  • Responsive Services
  • System support 

Counseling Curriculum:  A structured developmental lesson designed to assist students in achieving the competencies and is presented systematically through classroom and group activities.


Individual Student Planning:  School Counselors coordinating ongoing systemic activities designed to assist the individual student in establishing personal goals and developing future plans.


Responsive Services:  Activities that meet students’, parents’ and teachers’ immediate need for referral, consultation or information.


System support:  Professional development, consultation, collaboration, and teaming, and program management and operation activities that establish, maintain, and enhance the total school counseling program.
