High School Programs

High school is an important time for teens to think about who they are, who they want to be, and how that will guide their education, career and life choices. Teens have a lot to juggle while figuring this out, including schoolwork, jobs, relationships, family responsibilities, and extracurricular activities. 

Let LEAP help you and your family navigate this important journey to the future you want, in a caring and supportive environment.
