Middle School Study Halls & Tutorial

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Study hall, tutorial sessions, and a study improvement program help students achieve success.

For those students who need additional support, there are 30-minute tutorial sessions after lunch, Monday through Thursday. These sessions are usually voluntary, but teachers may assign a student to tutorial to make up work. Mentors and parents can also request that a struggling student be assigned mandatory tutorial. Students who are in advanced classes often use this time to work on assignments. If students do not need to meet with their teachers at that time, then they must go to their mentors and work on homework assignments or study. 

Night Study Hall is held Sunday through Thursday, from 6:15 to 7:45 for all boarding students. Students may study in their rooms under the supervision of the dorm staff. If a student's grades are low, he or she will be required to study under the supervision of a teacher until grades improve.

At the Middle School, the Study Improvement Plan, or SIP, begins at the beginning of sports and intramurals, and ends at 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday. On Friday, SIP is held from 1:30-2:30 pm. Students who have not completed homework assignments are required to attend. A student is recommended for SIP based on grades or at the request of parents or the principal.
