Student Support Services (SSS) Mission Statement


The Student Support Services Team of Choice Educational Academy provides developmental and systematic support for all students to ensure their academic, career, and personal/social success, and participation in the broader community. Our SSS  program is proactive and preventative. Through continuous service delivery, we prepare individuals today, while simultaneously providing visions for tomorrow.

Working together, the academic tutors, speech language pathologists, counselors, and learning specialists make up the Student Support Services Group (SSS). The group formed from a mutual need for communication, support, and program development. The group works with parents, students, faculty, and staff to provide education, information, and resources. SSS proactively provides education on a variety to topics, in addition, the group responds to crises affecting the community.

With an eye toward the development of preschool-Grade 12 health support and education, the group works collaboratively to identify areas of need and the resources necessary to fill such needs. SSS serves as a means of communication between faculty, staff, parents, students and administration. SSS members serve as support and resources to the individual divisions and support personnel.
