PROSPER in Lehigh County

Catasauqua

Our school district, which serves 1600 students, is located in the Lehigh Valley and serves portions of two counties. In Lehigh County it covers the Borough of Catasauqua and Hanover Township. In Northampton County it covers the Borough of North Catasauqua. The district operates one high school, one middle school and one elementary school. PROSPER is part of the Communities That Care (CTC) model which will soon mark its first full year of cooperation with the Catasauqua community and school district. Two of the five priorities of the CTC are substance use prevention among youth and educating parents about their role in substance use prevention. PROSPER oversees the delivery of Botvin LifeSkills Training in grade 6 and the Strengthening Families Program: for Parents and Youth 10-14 (SFP 10-14).
