Originally Published In
This paper describes a collaborative approach wherein master’s-level school counseling students provided online group counseling to at-risk virtual high school students. This project describes the utility of collaboration between master’s-level school counseling students and a state-approved virtual high school to employ group counseling to promote student success. The collaborative project met the following needs: (1) School counseling master’s students received experiential training and supervision leading online groups for at-risk high school students; and (2) at-risk, virtual, high school students participated in an 8-week educational and process counseling group emphasizing academic success. Implications for school counseling and counselor education are discussed.
