The national standards of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) provide for defining the role of the school counselor, evaluating the content of counseling programs, and effectively meeting the needs of students. This study surveyed 495 school counselors in all levels including Kindergarten through 12th grade in Texas public schools to determine levels of inclusion of ASCA’s national standards in their school counseling programs. Results indicated that school counselors at all grade levels shared a commitment to providing experiences that support the academic and career development of student competencies. Interestingly, elementary and high school counselors also shared an expressed commitment to providing experiences that support personal and social growth of their students.
