Student Assistance Program (SAP)
Student support groups provide one of the most powerful vehicles for personal growth and transformation. SAP is a voluntary and referral-based program that includes a systematic effort to educate, identify, asses, prepare and support students with various identified difficulties. Areas of concern include alcohol/drug use, eating disorders, chronic health issues, family support, and stress-related coping issues. Groups are facilitated by trained staff and community volunteers.
The Lunch Bunch is a 12-step meeting provided for students who are in need of support to maintain sobriety and healthy living. Teens meet during lunch for daily support. These groups are facilitated by area professionals licensed in chemical dependency counseling. (See also SAP groups and LOWD club meetings.)
One-on-one mentoring is offered for students identified as needing support to become more successful in school. This mentoring is provided by staff members or by community volunteers. Students and mentors are asked to meet at least once/week for emotional and academic support.

- Pull-out program for one-on-one tutoring occurs during study hall or elective classes
