Recovery and Academic Program (RAP)

Montgomery County Public Schools has partnered with Sheppard Pratt Health System to connect youth with academic and substance use recovery support services. The program pairs academic coursework from MCPS with recovery support services provided at The Landing, Family Services' recovery clubhouse.  RAP helps students continue working toward graduation in a safe and supportive environment during the day while learning the necessary skills needed to maintain sobriety in the afternoons and evenings.  It is free of charge to Montgomery County youth and accepts referrals from MCPS, juvenile drug court, and other non-profit agencies.

Mrs. Khadija F. Barkley, Principal, Special Assignment

RAP is made possible through a grant from Governor Larry Hogan's Opioid Operational Command Center.
