Academic Peer Mentoring Program 
The Academic Peer Mentoring Program is designed for any student who needs extra support outside of the classroom.  The program will:
  • Evaluate the student’s current study habits
  • Encourage development of effective study habits tailored to the individual student
  • Provide academic assistance with homework and preparing for tests
Contact your school counselor for referral to the Academic Peer Mentoring Program.  Students will be matched with an academic peer mentor based on meeting times, academic needs, interests, and involvements.
