Colorado’s School Counselor Corps Grant Program (SCCGP) funding is awarded to eligible school districts, BOCES, charter schools or Institute charter schools. The purpose of this program is to increase the availability of effective school-based counseling within secondary schools.

Grant funds are also used to increase the level of school counseling services provided to improve the graduation rate and increase the percentage of students who appropriately prepare for, apply to, and continue into postsecondary education

Impact on Secondary Schools

Over the six-year history of the Counselor Corps Grant Program, 153 secondary schools, representing 64 districts have participated, representing all regions throughout Colorado. More than 200 licensed school counselors have served Colorado schools, districts, BOCES, and students through the grant.  Eligible grantees have a higher than average dropout rate and/or free and reduced lunch rate as compared to all other Colorado secondary schools.
