ASCA Announces Josephine Dobbs Clement

Early College High School as a 2017-2018 RAMP School


ALEXANDRIA, VA. – The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) is pleased to announce Josephine Dobbs Clement Early College High School in Durham, NC as a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP).

The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Since the program’s inception, more than 800 schools have been designated as RAMP recipients.

“This year’s RAMP honorees have shown their commitment to students and the school counseling profession,” said Jill Cook, ASCA assistant director. “These schools used data to drive their program development and implementation so all students can achieve success. RAMP designation distinguishes these schools and encourages school counselors nationwide to strive for excellence.”

Josephine Dobbs Clement Early College High School will be honored at a recognition ceremony at ASCA’s annual conference in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday, July 16, 2018, for making an exemplary commitment to comprehensive school counseling programs.

RAMP applications are reviewed once a year by a panel of school counseling professionals, who assess the programs in 12 different areas of expertise. The next submission deadline is Oct. 15, 2018. For more information on the program, visit
