Title:NOSCA's eight components of college and career readiness counseling: Elementary school counselor's guide
Organization:College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
Short Description:This guide to the Eight Components of College and Career Readiness Counseling is part of a series — one each for elementary, middle and high school counselors — that helps school counselors intentionally focus their work on college and career readiness counseling.
Annotation:Own the Turf is NOSCA’s national advocacy campaign to galvanize and mobilize school counselors to provide every student with the inspiration, planning, academic preparation and social capital to graduate from high school ready for college and careers. NOSCA’s Eight Components of College and Career Readiness Counseling are the road map for this work. They outline an effective path toward creating a college-going culture in schools, districts and communities. This guide to the Eight Components of College and Career Readiness Counseling is part of a series — one each for elementary, middle and high school counselors — that helps school counselors intentionally focus their work on college and career readiness counseling. The three guides illustrate how school counselors can use the Eight Components to establish a college going culture across the K–12 pipeline, promote college and career readiness for all students, and close gaps between low-performing or traditionally underrepresented students and their peers.
