Intentional Peer-Mentoring Programs in Christian Schools: An Exploratory Study
Campolongo, Edward D.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v18 n1 p69-83 2009
This study investigated what Christian schools were doing with peer-mentoring programs. A total of 344 secondary schools accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) received a 19-question electronic survey that focused on the specifics of their peer-mentoring programs. A total of 80 schools responded, with 55% reporting organized peer-mentoring groups for students; 73% identified their groups as having been established for 6 years or less. This data, coupled with the lack of published research, indicates that there continues to be a need for further research in this area.
