School Counselor Corps Grant Program

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

The School Counselor Corps Grant program currently serves 119 schools in 52 districts and/or Charter School Institute schools. Over the six-year history of the $5 million Counselor Corps Grant Program, 126 secondary schools, representing 59 districts have participated, representing more than 100,000 students in all regions of Colorado. Approximately 60% of students in these districts are economically disadvantaged.
