Resources for High School Students


Fox Chapel Area High School offers a number of academic and mental and emotional health resources to ensure that its students are achieving to their maxium potentials.

Among those resources are:

Morning Support Time

Students may receive help with their work from 7-7:25 a.m. Monday through Friday.

Back on Track (BOT)

Back On Track is not the same as detention. Back on Track is intended as an opportunity for students to get “Back on Track” and stay on track.  There is a math teacher available on Mondays and Wednesdays to assist students. An English teacher is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. If a student needs help in other subjects, they are encouraged to contact our National Honor Society for a list of their fellow students who will tutor during Back On Track.

Transportation home from Back On Track

Students have the option to ride the BOT bus. There are two buses that leave at 3:45pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Please note that the BOT bus stops are not the same as the regular bus stops. Please keep in mind that some of the stops along the route could be up to six blocks away from the regular stops. Students should speak with the bus driver to determine where the best stop is for that student. The “big” bus covers the Kerr Elementary area, Sharpsburg, Aspinwall and Blawnox, and the “mini” bus hits Fairview, DMS, Middle Road, Rich Hill and Rural Ridge stops.

Please refer to the Back On Track bus schedule for a list of dates that transportation is available.

  • Daily in room 251 from 7 a.m. to 7:55 a.m.

Student Assistance Program (SAP)

SAP is composed of school and agency staff who are available to help you access school and community resources for your child. SAP will help you find services and assistance within the school and if needed, in the community.

  • Instructional Support Services (IS): Through the SAP program, students may receive a variety of instructional support based on the team’s recommendation.
  • Mental Health and D/A Services: Based on the team’s recommendation and parent sign off, students may receive additional support services.


A list of outside tutors is available on the district’s website. The School Counseling Office has a list of National Honor Society student tutors available as well.
