ACADEMICS FOR SUCCESS

The Academics for Success Program is designed to help all students attain their full academic potential, while providing extra support to students who need more guidance as they become accustomed to the transition into a new learning environment and increase their chances of succeeding academically.
The program is structured on three components: 1) academic monitoring and review program, offered during the academic year, 2) personal counseling and planning activities, and 3) an after-school study hall with peer-to-peer tutoring. It is Mentoring and Partnerships objective to ensure the students stay on path towards graduation and eventually transition to an institution of higher learning.

If a student does not meet the minimum requirement, they are placed on academic probation and are given additional guidelines and goals to ensure that they are committed to improving academically.
