In support of students' emotional health as well as academic success, North Point Academy offers parents the opportunity to have their teens participate in a free emotional health checkup by What's Up Wellness Checkups. The checkups are offered district-wide by the NJUHSD STARS program.  More detailed information about the program can be found at
The screening process helps students identify coping skills, support systems, and both in-school and community resources.  The screenings also identify risk factors associated with depression, anxiety, and alcohol/substance abuse.  The program is FREE, completely voluntary, and confidential. 
Parent consent is required and can be found HERE.  It is a one-time screening.  Parents are only notified if further support is recommended or requested by their students.

Selective Service Registration

Selective Service registration is required by law as the first part of a fair and equitable system that, if authorized by the President and Congress, would rapidly provide personnel to the Department of Defense while at the same time providing for an Alternative Service Program for conscientious objectors. By registering, a young man remains eligible for jobs, Federal student aid, State-based student aid in 31 states, Federally-funded job training, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men.

Work Permits

Minor students employed in the state of California must have a Permit to Employ and Work (commonly known as a "work permit"). Work permits are typically issued by the school where the student is enrolled. To obtain a work permit, THIS FORM signed by the employer, student, and student's guardian must be completed and returned to the school.  After review, the school issues the work permit. 
Please make sure the entire permit application is completed before turning it in. After the permit is processed, it will need to be signed by the student and taken to the employer.
