Director's Message

Focusing on Healthy social-emotional development of students and families

Welcome to the Family Support Center at LEAP Academy!

We are dedicated to promoting the physical and emotional wellness of our students and families. Healthy social-emotional development in children and youth correlates with healthy cognitive development and therefore creates a strong foundation for school achievement and life success. We embrace a holistic approach to our work with children and families that meets students at their level, while also engaging the whole family.

Our portfolio of services include:

  • Individual, Group and Grief Counseling
  • Meditation (Peer and Teacher-Student)
  • HIB Education, including age appropriate anti-bullying workshops, offered throughout the school year in the classroom.
  • Parental Support and Engagement Programs
  • Family and Crisis Interventions
  • Nutrition and Wellness Programs
  • Social Skill Development Groups

Our staff works closely with all units of the LEAP Academy to ensure that every student succeeds academically, socially and professionally, and that our students are supported, nurtured and empowered to succeed.
