Academic Supports

During the school year students may find they need help with one or more subjects. It is important to ask for help before more time passes and it is “too late”. Remember, the #1 item that college reps and employers care most about are your class grades. Grades are a reflection of focus, dedication, perseverance, and effort. It is not a sign of weakness to ask a teacher, a peer, or a parent for assistance.

Where else can you turn?

The Writing Center is open for business every school day during 4th – 8th periods, so check out their page at Welcome to the SCN Writing & Reading Center! Wednesday night Peer Tutoring begins on October 28th, so be looking for more details on that valuable resource. We hope to announce even more avenues of academic support in the weeks and months ahead, so keep checking for that news.

Academic Tip: Students, it is very important that you check your e-mail at least once a day, every day. This is the method that most educational and professional groups communicate, including our own. Many adults communicate in this manner, so as you become more adult-like, you should also master e-mail. This is a positive habit that will allow you to keep up with deadlines, events, etc. so you don’t miss out on anything important.
