This article provides an abbreviated description of a qualitative study of the Succeeding in School (SIS) program, an Internet-based intervention designed to help students reflect on key elements of academic and career success. The American School Counselor Association's National Standards call for school counselors to focus on the academic, career, and personal/social development of students. Strengths-Based School Counseling (Galassi & Akos, 2007) suggests that school counselors should implement that call through promoting context-based development for all students, promoting individual student strengths, and promoting strengths-enhancing environments. Students used the SIS program to identify personal strengths and characteristics, as well as strengths-enhancing aspects of their environment useful for achieving academic and career success.
