ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE

Teachers... The First Resource
Always contact your son’s teacher first. If you need additional assistance you may contact the Head of the Department https://www.cbhs.org/page/academics/faculty (listed first under the department heading) or your son’s school counselor. For Faculty Office Hours click here.

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. 

Math Lab
The peer-led Math Lab meets every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:15 a.m. and every Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. in Room 108 for any student needing help in Math. Students should also contact their teachers if they are having difficulty and seek peer tutoring through their academic counselor.

Language Lab
Schedule and details TBD.
