Academics

Counseling Department

Our Counseling Department offers unparalleled individualized guidance in academic and personal matters. With an Academic Advisor at each grade-level and a Personal Counselor for short-term crisis intervention and support, our students receive personalized, high quality guidance in achieving academic success and overall well-being.

Academic Support

In addition to the personalized attention students receive from their Academic Advisors, built into our unique, rotating block schedule is an “X-block” period that serves as Office Hours for students. These designated blocks of “Office Hours” are set times during the regular school day when students may seek out specific teachers for additional tutoring or use the time to complete school work. As a college preparatory school, we seek to empower our students’ sense of self-advocacy by providing this option. Balancing a rigorous college-prep course of studies with co-curricular activities is challenging and we feel it is also our responsibility to model and teach how to achieve a healthy work-life balance. Students may also seek out peer-tutoring in our Academic Support Center before or after school. Our student members of the National Honor Society and the California Scholarship Federation provide this peer-tutoring service. All teachers are available for after-school tutoring as well, providing a variety of opportunities and mediums through which our students can access academic support.
