Thorngren, Jill M.; Downey, Jayne; Nelson, Mark D.
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n11 2006
There are several factors that encourage at-risk students to finish high school and continue to pursue post-secondary education. Some school counseling programs have combined these factors in an attempt to foster a pro-college culture within their schools. Using qualitative methods, a study was conducted to assess school counselors' perspectives regarding the factors that related to creating and maintaining a pro-college culture. Results and a discussion of the findings are presented.
