Student-Centered Support

By taking a student-centered approach to education at Pan American Academy, we utilize our skills and attitudes to recognize the individuality of each student. We also recognize the importance of the relationship between teachers, learners, families and the community.

The student services team is dedicated to removing barriers and to create opportunities for student success. This team addresses a myriad of issues and works in collaboration with other school professionals and community agencies in order to meet the needs of our students and families. 

At Pan American Academy Charter School, the student services team supports: 

Multi-Tiered System of Supports
  • Attendance/Truancy
    • Project Go partnership with District Attorney
  • Academic Support
  • Social and Emotional Supports
    • SEL Curriculum
    • Counseling Services
    • STARR-Certified Trauma & Resilience Practitioner Program
    • Student Assistance Program (SAP)
      The Pennsylvania Student Assistance Program (SAP) trains school staff to identify alcohol, tobacco, other drugs, and mental health issues that act as barriers to a student’s success. Students can then be connected with resources. Services may include consultation, referrals to school SAP teams and SAP liaisons, risk assessments, in-school prevention and intervention support for students, and referrals for additional supports in communities/out of school.

      Anyone can refer a student to the SAP program including friends, family, teachers, and other school staff. To refer a student, please contact the SAP Liaison by calling 215-425-1212.

Wellness Center

The Wellness Center delivers health care services within the school setting. Our goal is to improve health outcomes by providing better access to health care and reducing time spent out of school due to illness. Experienced nurses conduct health screenings, tend to daily medical concerns, and facilitate referrals to outside health services. Students are able to receive dental care and vision care in school through outside partnerships.
