Malcolm X once said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” A key focus of the Academy is to provide support so that students equip themselves today with the education needed to compete in their future endeavors and life. In addition to daily advising and a hands-on approach from faculty and staff, assistance is available through these tools:
Office Hours are offered by staff daily to all students as needed or desired. Office hours may be utilized by any student seeking enhanced understanding or enrichment in a class, trade or athletics. This may be mandated by staff at his/her discretion. Students earning below a “C” in any class at the interim of any quarter shall be required to immediately begin attending Office Hours with the staff of record for that class.
Peer Tutoring is approved by the faculty and assigned through the Counseling Office, and is available to students who need additional assistance.
Applied Learning Skills Lab is an elective course for credit that incorporates staff-directed lessons on test-taking strategies, organization, time management and personal development.
Quiet Time begins at 8:30 pm each school night in the residence halls. Students must be in their rooms or in a supervised study area if they need additional support. Quiet Time is monitored by the Residential Life staff and is intended to provide structure to study time.
