HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Student Assistance Program (SAP) at Canton Junior-Senior High School aids students who are experiencing difficulty in their academic pursuits. These difficulties may arise from social (peers), emotional (stress), and/or physical (drugs and alcohol) problems. This team is comprised of school personnel who respond to referrals about students who are referred by faculty, administration, parents, other students, or themselves. All information about the referral is confidential. Students are typically referred because they have exhibited noticeable changes in their academics, attendance, and/or behaviors.
Parents and community members are able to refer a student to SAP. If the need arises, you can get a referral form from the right here:
All you have to do is print it out, fill it out, and mail it or drop it off to Jessica Watson at the high school.
After the SAP team gets a referral, they investigate the issue further by gathering information from other faculty members. These faculty members complete a checklist for that student's observable behaviors, which consist of the following: sleepiness, drop in grades, change in appearance, change in social group, lack of interest, etc. After this information is compiled, the team must get parental and student permission so that the student can get the best possible help for his/her problem. The parent also has input by filling out a survey about his/her child, and this helps the team with issues related to the home environment. The SAP program is used as an intervention, not as a treatment or a cure. A referral to the team does not mean that a student is in trouble, but it does mean that he/she is going to get the best assistance possible so that he/she can be successful in his/her academic life. SAPs goal is to see that each student achieves his/her best success in his/her school endeavors.
This year the professionals who have been specially trained to be members of the SAP Team are:
Financial Aid Information
PA Forward Student Loans: Decisions vs. Costs
The Financial Offer Letters and balances can be confusing, but there’s help. PHEAA offers webinars on these topics and PHEAA’s PA Forward Loan Program can assist with meeting the gap in aid to help families afford education. Share PHEAA.org/virtual and PHEAA.org/paforward with your student’s families to help ease the process.
How College Costs & Student Loan Borrowing Have Changed Over Time
The COVID 19 pandemic has had some impact on the cost of college.
The average net cost of attendance at public 4-year schools has declined to $19,250 for the current school year, after adjustment for inflation. Private nonprofit colleges also saw a decrease in their cost of attendance, falling to $32,800. A household’s share of student debt has also fallen as mortgage debt has outpaced student loan debt since the beginning of the pandemic.
(STUDENTS NO LONGER NEED SAT/ACT SCORES TO PLAY AT THE COLLIEGATE LEVEL)
he Division I and Division II quick reference sheets have been updated to include the redesigned SAT concordance in the sliding scale. As you assist students and families, use these documents to help them better understand the required academic standards their student must meet. The “Division I Academic Requirements” and “Division II Academic Requirements” documents are both found on our Want to Play College Sports webpage under "Initial-Eligibility Toolkit," and on the High School Portal’s Resources Page under “Important New Rules.” Please feel free to download them (below) and share with your college-bound student-athletes and their families.

Division II Academic Requirements
Student-Athlete Profile Account
When the NCAA Eligibility Center redesigned its registration website at www.eligibilitycenter.org , one of the most significant enhancements was the creation of the profile account. The profile account gives college-bound student-athletes the opportunity to make the best decision about their college choices earlier in their high school careers. Students may now choose from the traditional certification account for those wanting to attend and compete at Division I and II schools, or a free profile account for those attending Division III schools and students who are not yet sure at what school they want to attend and compete.
Registration for a profile account is free and easy. Students should expect 10 to 20 minutes to complete a profile account. Also, if a student with a profile account decides to compete at the Division I or II level, they can easily transition their profile account to a certification account. (A registration fee of $80 (domestic/Canada) or $135 (international) is required to begin the certification process.) Please encourage your freshmen student-athletes to register for a free profile account.

High School Transcript Upload
To date, over 18,000 high schools have used the transcript upload feature available through the High School Portal to send more than 897,000 transcripts to the Eligibility Center.
We encourage you to continue using the upload feature for all preliminary and final transcripts for your students, as it significantly reduces processing time for student accounts. As a reminder, only transcripts in a PDF file format may be uploaded through the High School Portal. Any other document types will not be reviewed and could potentially hold up a student's evaluation. Also, when students register with the Eligibility Center, the student must accept the terms and conditions, which provides broad permission for all schools to share official high school transcripts and academic records with the Eligibility Center. Please click here to access a video tutorial on how to upload transcripts to the Eligibility Center.
Free NCAA/NFHS Partnership Initial-Eligibility Online Course
The NCAA Eligibility Center, in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), has updated the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Course available through nfhslearn.com Counselors and coaches can visit NFHSLearn.com and complete the FREE initial-eligibility course. This interactive course familiarizes viewers with Division I and II academic requirements, as well as the Eligibility Center’s registration and certification processes required for college-bound student-athletes. It’s a great tool for you and your colleagues. Please pass it on!
