High School Student Services
In 2010, 2013 and 2016, the Lake Braddock High School Student Services program met the criteria to become a Recognized ASCA Model Program by the American School Counselor Association. A RAMP designated school counseling program must demonstrate a comprehensive, data-driven program that meets the needs of all students, and the designation is held for three years. Lake Braddock High School Counseling is one of the first RAMP Schools of Distinction, and was one of five schools to receive this award nationally in 2016.
The vision of the Lake Braddock Counseling Staff is for all students to attain their maximum potential in the areas of academic achievement, personal development, and post-secondary planning through data-driven programs that promote personal responsibility, integrity, respect, compassion, commitment and service to others.
The Lake Braddock High School Counseling staff collaborates with students, parents and staff members to prepare and inspire all students to achieve high standards of excellence. We provide a comprehensive developmental program that addresses the academic, social/emotional and college/career preparatory needs of our diverse student body. Empowering students to achieve their current and future goals, we encourage student self-advocacy and accountability. We also promote the development of citizenship that embraces excellence of character.
