Group Counseling @ LCCS
Image result for group counseling

At Learning Community Charter School, group counseling is vital in the delivery of the ASCA National Model to our student population, as part of an effective comprehensive school counseling program supported by the school administration. 

The reason we have various groups at LCCS is because we believe it is important that we have our students working on shared tasks and developing supportive relationships in a group setting. Our groups provide our students with a direct service for academic, social-emotional or situational concerns. Through communication, cooperation and research-based activities, our group members are able to achieve healthier personal adjustment, cope with stress and address their unique needs. 

It is very important for me to meet students where they are. In order to do that, I would like for your child to complete a needs assessment survey first!
