The mission of the Clear Creek Independent School District At-Risk Program is to establish an engaging educational influence among At-Risk students through academic and guidance opportunities derived from a quality collaboration of school, community, and state to improve social skills, academic performance, and school attendance, ensuring all students graduate as contributing citizens ready for college and work.

Assessment and intervention strategies are administered by the campus Student Success Team (SST). The SST may consist of an administrator, a counselor, the general education teacher, the dyslexia education specialist and the diagnostician. Together, these individuals problem-solve and share interventions to assist students who are having academic, social, and emotional challenges.
Students identified as At-Risk qualify for tutoring, early childhood development programs such as Pre-Kindergarten, and other special services.
