Tutoring

Academic Assistance 

The purpose of academic assistance is to provide support for students (Grades 4-12) who have fallen behind academically, or who struggle at home with access to technology.  

Academic assistance has been developed to support both teachers and students in our shared mission. Teachers will refer students to the program on either a short or long term basis.  Students who are referred have missed multiple assignments, turned in poor quality or incomplete work consistently, or are in danger of failing the course. Students whose parents indicate that they do not have access to the internet or computers at home may receive a referral from the administration.
