• The Allen ISD Counseling Program is built upon the National Model outlined by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). All curriculum and activities reflect these high standards. Our program is a comprehensive curriculum, preventative in design, and developmental in nature. The Counseling curriculum focuses on three areas: Academic, Career, and Personal/Social. The purpose of our program is to impart specific skills, knowledge, and attitudes that lead to specific learning outcomes or competencies within these areas.

     

    Allen ISD Counseling Program Mission Statement:
