Nicknamed “The Hub,” the Student Success Center at ETHS serves as a one-stop shop that fosters interactive learning and collaboration by providing students with a central location to access programs, facilities, and services. The mission of the ETHS Student Success Center is to maintain an accessible, inclusive and purposeful environment that provides a variety of student-centered services and supports, including:
Academic Study Centers. Department Study Centers have staff members assigned to provide department-specific support to students before school and throughout the day. Students may use the centers during lunch periods or unscheduled time. Visit the academic department web pages for more information on study centers.
College & Career Services. College and career resources and services are available for current students, parents/guardians, and alumni. The Hub houses an extensive collection of college and career reference materials, ACT/SAT/AP/ASVAB exam review books, and hosts nearly 300 college and career representatives each year. Computers are available for students to research careers, colleges and scholarships; complete applications, interest inventories and resumes; and compose essays. Staff is available for student walk-ins and appointments for supplemental counseling services, assistance completing applications,essays and resumes, and understanding the financial aid process.

Community Service Office. The Community Service Office provides students with personal, one-on-one assistance in identifying service and leadership opportunities in the community as well as within ETHS that suit student schedules, personal goals, skill sets, and interests. Meaningful service benefits our community as well as our students. Many college, scholarship, and employment applications ask students to write about their volunteer experiences or their community involvement because it is understood that such experiences are significant to the development of young people. Additionally, Freshman, Sophomore and National Honor Societies as well as some ETHS classes require community service. Students can find more information about service opportunities on the Community Service page.
Credit Recovery. Credit Recovery is designed to provide a flexible, self-paced learning environment for students. It enables students to recover credits in core subject areas and to earn the credits necessary to graduate on schedule. Students are enrolled in the program based on counselor recommendations and approval from the Director of Student Support Services.
Homework Center. The Homework Center provides students with an after-school academic environment to focus on completing homework. Tutors are available at the Homework Center to provide assistance with questions.
