Enrollment or re-enrollment in post secondary education.
Guidance and counseling in the post-secondary admissions process.
Academic, personal, and career counseling.
Assistance with completing the FAFSA application and securing financial aid for students through various resources.
Referral to community agencies to complete GED process.
The EOC main office is located in Riverdale and maintains additional office space and staff on campus within the AAP facility.
