Mandy Savitz-Romer shows what is possible when schools and districts draw upon the talents of their counselors and put them at the center of students' school experience. She offers a strategic approach to school counseling that enables educational leaders to draw on existing staff to create supportive contexts and programs for students. In this model of the "academic home," counselors serve as the first point of contact for student support, connecting and coordinating services much like primary care physicians coordinate patient care in medical settings. They serve as the hub of a network of supports to prevent students from falling between the cracks.

Fulfilling the Promise brings together research, practical experience, and policy recommendations to envision a focused and practical role for school counselors in the twenty-first century.

"Savitz-Romer masterfully illuminates the compelling 'story' of the school counseling profession; while at the same time, she highlights the often-forgotten underutilization of counselors in today's schools. Fulfilling the Promise is particularly useful to school leaders who seek a systemic approach for ensuring student success."
--Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy, dean, School of Education, American University

Mandy Savitz-Romer is the Nancy Pforzheimer Aronson Senior Lecturer in Human Development and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a former urban high school counselor.
