Academic Counseling & Student Support

We always have our thumb on the pulse of our student body. We listen to what our students say. In response, 为了满足学生的需要,我们调整了日常课程安排,并增加了支持服务. 我们认识到向年轻人传授时间管理等无形技能的重要性, how to self-advocate, and when to seek help from teachers or others.

How We Are Different

We are happy to say that we are not like anybody else. Here’s what makes us stand out from the rest:

  • 我们有意让我们的教师更容易接近我们的学生,简单地通过分组和他们的办公室在校园的位置.
  • 学生每周最多安排四次个人学习时间(ILT). During this time, students can seek faculty assistance, complete assignments, or work on group projects.
  • No matter what age we are, we all need “recess” time. Family and House meetings during the school day make a great break (recess). During these student-led meetings, they develop leadership skills, grow and strengthen friendships, and refresh their minds.

The MH - MA Schedule

我们安排了每天的课程表,以反映学生在大学里的期望. Each day is different, but week to week remains the same. Class times vary in length between 85, 55, and 25 minutes. 

Since implementing the MH - MA schedule, we have seen increased class participation, better-prepared students, and more student participation in extracurricular activities.

Student Support

A structured environment is a key component to developing positive habits. 我们在学生的日常生活中建立了以下学生支持课程:

Individual Learning Time (ILT)

Mandatory Learning Time (MLT)
学业成绩低于70%的学生将强制学习时间改为强制学习时间. 老师可能会根据自己认为适合班级和特定学生的分数要求提高分数要求(比如75%或80%). 

我们要求MLT学生与老师见面,直到他们的学业成绩和/或问责制和责任重新确立. Once a student has returned to satisfactory levels, they may return to ILT. 

Structured Learning Time (SLT)
If faculty and/or our academic team determines a student needs more support, then MLT is transitioned to Structured Learning Time (SLT). SLT学生到一个特定的地点报到,并按照作业清单和/或接受辅导, depending on what they need. 一名特殊的SLT老师与学生单独合作,直到学生的学习成绩和学习承诺得到改善.

Special Courses

Navigating new surroundings, preparing to graduate, college entrance exams, and adjusting to a new culture can seem daunting to young adults (or anyone, for that matter!). We’ve developed special courses to guide them through these challenges.
