The Willowbrook High School Guidance & Counseling Program has met the criteria to become a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) by the American School Counselor Association! The RAMP designation is awarded to schools that align with the criteria set by the ASCA national model.

There are less than 500 schools in the country and only 36 in Illinois who have received the RAMP designation. For more information on ASCA and RAMP, click here.
