The Academic Center

The Academic Center (TAC) supports students by providing guidance for the improvement of academic skills, tracking student progress and facilitating communication with faculty. Students receive individualized attention focused on developing effective study skills, improving organization and time management strategies, practicing writing and critical-reading skills, and reviewing key concepts within specific content areas.

Students may be referred to TAC by their advisors or teachers at any time during the year. Appointments with tutors are scheduled during free periods in the academic day. Some students visit TAC weekly for the entire year, while others cycle into the schedule for several weeks and then return to working independently. TAC provides students with a new perspective on their academic work and an additional point of adult contact, complementing well-established relationships with teachers and advisors.
