The Student Service Center is a hub of many different resources for our students at FFCHS. Its primary purpose is to provide support for at risk students to help ensure academic success in all areas. The Student Service Center also provides college and career preparation assistance, including ACT preparation, university/college/trade-school search assistance, college application guidance, and scholarship acquisition assistance.
An average of 50 students per week are assisted in the Student Service Center, and many of them often return because of the focused academic assistance and guidance they receive. By November this year over 175 students had utilized the center for various reasons, comprising over 74% of the school’s total enrollment. Many students that receive assistance through the Student Service Center find the center a quiet place to work and receive the additional help they need to succeed in their classes. The Student Service Center continuously tracks and records the progress of the students’ academic success and offers a variety of opportunities to help them excel in their classes.
In order to tutor and serve the student population that utilizes the Student Service center we collaborate with the Utah State University America Reads program. The USU America Reads volunteers work with the Student Service Center Coordinator to assist students at Fast Forward with one-on-one and group tutoring, as well as helping with skills for students seeking employment, and offering resources that help prepare students for higher education.
