Academic Component

Academic Saturdays

All Participants must attend the Academic Saturdays held at Texas Wesleyan University twice a month during the school year to receive instruction in math, science and English classes, test preparation tutorials, college preparation services, college, career, financial aid information, financial literacy, citizenship and leadership and STEM Seminars, as well as community service activities. Participants are expected to arrive promptly, actively participate in all activities and remain until the entire session has concluded.

After School Tutoring Sessions

Participants will be required to attend one (1) hour of tutoring for each high school core subject (Math, English and Science) in which they receive a 91 or below as indicated on their most recent six-weeks grade report.

Tutoring is also available online through Tutor.com; students have access to this service 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. To access students will need a username and password assigned by their coordinator.

Individual Academic Advising Sessions

Project Coordinators will provide Participants with individual academic advising services at their high schools at least once every 6-week grading period to review report cards and assign/schedule any necessary tutoring services. Additionally, Project Coordinators will meet with Participants to update Academic Progress Plans and Individual Service Plans each six weeks grading period, and to discuss any necessary changes and revisions.

Parent Workshops & Meetings

Project Staff will schedule and conduct Parent Workshops during each semester in order to keep parents informed of Project activities and plans. These workshops will also provide parents with information regarding how to help their child with the college admissions and financial aid process. Parental attendance at these scheduled workshops is strictly enforced and mandatory. Individual parent meetings will be held on an “as needed” basis.
