Our Services

All our schools have Family and Student Resource Centers where students, parents and guardians can receive direct or referred services, including counseling for family and youth. Case management is provided for students at risk and families in need. Apart from school related services and supports FSRCs offer job training and information about job opportunities, affordable housing, rentals and home ownership.

Focus Areas

Case Management
The center provides direct student and family intake assessments, school-based social services, academic interventions and support, counseling (i.e. school and home), and referral services (i.e. behavioral health, etc.).

Students at Risk
To increase academic outcomes, all students at an immediate risk of failure are assigned a case manager who will assess the student and identify the issues that impact his/her academic progress, exploring a variety of solutions, which will include additional supports for the student’s family.

Crisis Intervention
Utilizing key indicators (i.e. school lateness, absences, no school uniform, etc.), FSRC staff will identify students in need of support and interview these students to determine what, if any, barriers to learning exist and work on removing these barriers before they escalate to crisis level.

Support School Climate & Culture
FSRCs support and extend the school’s activities on school climate and culture through their parent and community outreach, programs and events.

Continuing Education
Universal Companies is not only committed to providing top-notch K-12 education, but also providing continuing educational opportunities for students, parents, staff and the community. Universal has partnerships with Harcum College, the Computer Technology Institute and the Community College of Philadelphia.
