Youth Service Center

  • YSC Mission

    The Mission of the Bryan Station High School Youth Services Center is to utilize faculty, staff, parents and community resources to work collaboratively in assisting our students with the highest level of achievement in making a successful transition to adult life.

    Goal

    To enhance students’ ability to succeed in school by developing and sustaining partnerships that promote:

    • College and career readiness
    • Academic achievement and well-being
       

    Procedures

    Families: Parents/guardians must call to schedule a visit to the YSC. Our direct line is (859) 381-3321. Once appointments are established, then families visit the center through our outside entrance only. Paperwork to help us understand your current emergency are provided for you to fill out and bring to your appointment.

    Students: Students will be asked to come to the YSC for appointments by calling a class or by sending an appointment slip. Students will return to the classroom with the same slip signed by the YSC coordinator or intern. When a student has an emergency or has a plan in place to be seen by the YSC, please call ahead before sending that student.
