Academic Achievement Among Caribbean Immigrant Adolescents: The Impact of Generational Status on Academic Self-Concept.

Caribbean American immigrant students, who represent one of the largest subgroups in the Black population in the United States, exhibit low achievement scores and high dropout rates, which are both correlated with lifelong negative employment and psychosocial outcomes. To understand how immigrant status may impact academic achievement in this population, this study had 200 Caribbean immigrant adolescents complete the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale and a demographic questionnaire. The results of an analysis of variance revealed a significant main effect of generational status for academic self-concept, but post hoc analysis revealed no significant differences among the mean academic self-concept scores for first-, second-, and third-generation Caribbean adolescents. Implications for school counselors desiring to facilitate positive academic outcomes for Caribbean American adolescents are considered. **********
