The Center’s Mission

The mission of the Bishop Hendricken High School Academic Support Center is to support classroom instruction by providing assistance to teacher referred eighth through twelfth grade students with a variety of strategies to facilitate their learning. These strategies include, but are not limited to study skills, test preparation, executive functioning skills and self advocacy for their academic growth.

Referral Process

Students are referred to the center by classroom teachers, school counselors, the school social worker, administrators, and admissions. The Support Center staff reviews the referral to determine if the student qualifies to attend the Center. The student will attend the Center at a scheduled time from his study hall or free period, one to three times per our seven day rotation, depending upon his level of need.

Support Center Services

  • Identification of the student’s learning style
  • Instruction in personalized study skills and executive functioning skills
  • Test preparation and test taking strategies within the context of content area material
  • Planning, composing and editing of essays
  • Peer tutors within the program
  • Self advocacy and quarterly goal setting
  • Morning Math during homeroom

Student Progress

A student’s progress is monitored daily. Overall progress in the center is evaluated quarterly to determine if the student should exit the Center or continue to attend for an additional quarter in order to facilitate academic improvement. Communication with the student’s school counselor and parents is provided as needed.
