The Academic Year Program
Students meet regularly with an academic year counselor (AYC) who supports them with academic classes, tutoring services, financial literacy, goal setting, and college and career exploration. The AYC provides general support and advocacy for every student. Furthermore, the following targeted technical assistance is provided to juniors and seniors: career interest, college searches and admissions criteria, financial aid, scholarships, fee waivers for eligible students, and test preparation.
Workshops held during the school year are designed to help students with the following:
- PSAT and SAT preparation
- study skills
- time management
- college research
- college applications
- financial aid
Regular parent workshops are held to provide technical assistance and support. Cultural events are also planned throughout the year.
Throughout the academic year, students are invited to join organized visits to many New England colleges and universities. Students go on campus tours and interview with admissions representatives. College visits also provide students an opportunity to view campus facilities, eat in dining halls, and speak with college students and faculty.
