Student Support Services

Welcome to EAPrep's Student Support Services Page.
Student Support Services
includes prevention, intervention, transition and follow-up services for students and families at East Austin College Prep. Our SSS staff provides direct services for all children and youth at EAPrep, especially those who are experiencing problems that create barriers to learning. Direct services are provided by means such as education, counseling, consultation and individual and group assessment. In addition, Student Support Services personnel provide in-service training, parent education, community collaboration and carry out student service program management. We believe all student support services are a vital part of comprehensive school program success.
