Grief Support in Schools
The Academy offers grief groups for school-aged students, providing them the opportunity to connect with their peers as they learn and grow through their grief together. The six-week program aims to help children understand and normalize their own grief experiences, while also providing tools for coping.
The Academy is available to respond when a death occurs in the school community and will facilitate grief support as well as debriefing services in a group setting to students and staff alike. All of our Grief Support in Schools services are offered free of charge to any school (preK-12) in the community.
For the 2023-2024 school year, the Academy is providing school grief groups to the following schools:
- Rock Creek Elementary School
- Summit Middle School
- Urbandale High School
- Merrill Middle School
- Perkins Elementary School
- Meredith Middle School
- Brody Middle School
