Academic Success Programs
Figuring out how you learn best is all part of your journey as a student. The Nazareth community will help you do just that.
The needs of both students and teachers continually evolve throughout the learning process. At Nazareth, students and teachers take a team approach, providing proactive support for each other so that all are empowered to achieve a higher level of effectiveness.
The Academic Success Programs at Nazareth is here for you, every step of the way.
The Learning Support Program is provided for at least one academic year to students who have a diagnosed learning difference or experience academic difficulty. While postponing the study of a foreign language for one to two years, the student works daily in small groups of no more than five with a resource teacher as the primary instructor. During this time, the student aims for greater self-knowledge and more effective ways of successfully navigating her particular learning difficulties. While accommodations (extended time on assessments, preferential seating, etc.) can be provided, the curriculum is not modified. One academic credit is earned under the name of Academic Enrichment. The cost for enrollment in the Learning Support Program is $4,000 per year in addition to the cost of tuition.
NHS 1-1 peer tutoring
- Communicate with your daughter’s teacher your concern for assistance.
- Call the NHS Moderator or your daughter's counselor who can arrange a peer tutor through NHS.
- A student in need of assistance can be paired with an NHS student. The students arrange a mutually agreed upon day and time to meet. Usually they meet two times a week before or after school.
The Math Center is located in the back room of the library on the second floor. The math faculty, along with the members of Mu Alpha Theta, the Math Honor Society, are available to assist the students in math throughout the school day. The Math Center is open 7:20 AM for before school help. Any student wishing to use the Math Center during her lunch or study needs to obtain a pass that morning during homeroom in Room 25. Tutoring is also available after school in the Math Center. Students are encouraged to just drop in before or after school as needed.
