Child and Youth Services

West Point School Support Services is the number one resource for parents to find information about schools in the area. Your school liaison officer will take you through each and every option available to you and help to secure whatever you need to make your choice official and enroll your children in a new school. They understand the particular challenges faced by military families and the children who grow up in these unique circumstances, and they work hard to make sure that any educational transitions are seamless. A school liaison officer will provide you with specific information like eligibility and age requirements, specific school policies, graduation requirements, available extracurricular activities, homeschooling, and much more. They hold periodic workshops for parents to make sure that every parent has access to the resources to make the most informed decision possible.
