Recent demands from educators and policymakers require
school counselors to ensure that students are college and
career ready. In this 10‐year content analysis of peer reviewed
research, investigators sought to review and
describe the available intervention research designed to
improve post‐secondary success. Ten (n = 10) articles
published between 2007‐2016 met the inclusion criteria and
were coded across the dimensions of project leadership,
program goals, and research rigor. All ten intervention
studies identified were implemented in high school settings,
and five of the ten were large‐scale, multi‐modal
collaborative interventions. None of the articles were
published in counseling journals, and various levels of rigor
were represented across the studies. Implications for
researchers and school counselors are discussed.
