The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of self as a person, of self as a student and of school of graduating seniors deemed at risk for school failure enrolled in non-traditional and traditional high schools in Georgia. This study wanted to determine if there were significant differences in these students‘ perceptions (self-concept, student self, school) based on gender and socio-economic status. Graduating seniors deemed at risk of school failure were of particular interest in this study because they represent students who have overcome significant barriers in their academic and personal lives to graduate from high school. The findings were discussed in relations to the dependent and independent variables of the study. The results and the conclusion for the study were also presented, in addition to recommendations for further research and practice.
