Parent/Student Resources

Parent/Student Resources

Family engagement is a core part of our approach.

We partner with families and community leaders to cultivate a web of support for students that clears a path to and through college. If you’re a returning or new family, please bookmark and continually check this web page for important and helpful resources for your child. Here, you’ll find an array of materials designed to enrich your child’s academic experience at NLCP.

Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Resources for Students

If you or someone you know has thoughts of suicide, has experienced trauma, or wants to talk with someone about overwhelming thoughts and feelings, we encourage you to talk with a trusted adult. This may include a parent, guardian, or adult in your school. Your school’s Behavioral Health Team (BHT), which may include a nurse, psychologist, counselor, or social worker, can help you get the support you need, as well. For more information, please visit: Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Resources
