Academic Assistance

Extra Help Available to Students


Center for Learning and Academic Wellness

The Center for Learning and Academic Wellness (CLAW) provides peer-led academic tutoring to students in need of additional support in all subject areas. CLAW is overseen by Faculty Moderators, and the academic tutoring is facilitated by members of the National Honor Society. This service is available to all students who wish to proactively seek out extra help. It is the responsibility of students who are failing or at risk of failing specific courses to be present at CLAW sessions.

CLAW sessions are held Monday through Friday, from 7:20 am to 8:05 am (Period 0), and Tuesdays from 2:30 pm -3:15 pm in the Brother Henry S. Wright Learning Commons.

Students are empowered to “drop in” any time between 7:20 am and 7:55 am When dropping in, students are expected to come with specific questions or issues to be tackled. While homework assignments can be the focus of these sessions, the expectation is that tutors will use specific questions to teach concepts. Tutors will not simply give students answers to homework assignments.

Academic Intervention Counseling

Our academic intervention counselor, Ms. Jennifer Posner, is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for assistance.

If you would like your son to meet with Ms. Posner, please contact his guidance counselor.
