Welcome to the LVA Student Assistance Program Page

Welcome to the Lehigh Valley Academy Student Assistance Program (SAP) Page! The SAP team assists school personnel in identifying issues including alcohol, tobacco, other drug abuse, and mental health issues which pose a barrier to a student’s success. The primary goal of the Student Assistance Program (SAP) is to help students overcome these barriers in order that they may achieve success.

Do you have a concern about an LVA student? Please reach out to a SAP Team member by completing our online referral form. All information regarding SAP referrals is kept confidential. They may be submitted anonymously if you wish.
