General Counseling

Group Counseling Program at St. Francis

The group-counseling program at St. Francis High School is designed to meet the needs of all of our students.

When students experience difficult personal situations, they often find it hard to focus on their academics. Providing emotional support to these students, helps them not only with their life’s challenges but also to focus more on their school work.

Group sizes are limited and registration is required. For more information please contact Mrs. Rupp.
