Student Assistance Program (SAP)

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is an intervention program staffed by SAP trained teachers, guidance counselors, our school nurse, and members of our administration. The goal of SAP is identification of at-risk students in an effort to connect them and their families with those inside and outside the school building who can help.

As a member of the Souderton Area High School community, your responsibility is to aid in the identification of your peers that may be “at-risk.” A student may be considered at-risk if there is suspicion of depression, an eating disorder, school phobia, substance abuse, physical and/or sexual abuse, suicidal tendencies, truancy, or other behaviors of concern to you as a thoughtful member of our school community. If you suspect someone you care about may be at-risk because they are exhibiting one or more of the behaviors listed above, you should see a member of the SAP Team and report your concerns.

Information reported to the SAP Team is highly confidential and, when not required to do so by the state, maintains the anonymity of those reported and reporting. For more information, please refer to the Student Assistance Program Brochure (PDF)
