  • Group Counseling for At-Risk Students

    Research has indicated that group counseling is a practical way to serve students who are struggling academically, emotionally and behaviorally. Many at-risk students may experience low levels of self-esteem because of the adversity in their home life; group counseling appears to help this specific population. Group counseling for at-risk 9th graders at Lowery Freshman Center will be implemented at least once a week during the fall semester, spring semester, and potentially through the summer.
