The Academic Success Program is designed to assist a student who has been identified as needing support with basic study skills.
The goal of the program is to introduce and reinforce skills like organization, time management, note-taking, reading comprehension, and learning & memory tools, among others, through a dedicated Study Skills curriculum. A student is introduced to the concept of learning styles and is taught to identify and work with her own strengths.
A participant in the Academic Success Program attends a summer session prior to beginning 9th Grade. During the school year, she meets in mentoring sessions during which study strategies for particular courses are addressed. An after-school program provides access to subject area tutors as well as one-on-one mentoring with the Academic Success Program Coordinator.
