SHS Learning Academy

The Learning Academy Format has changed!!!

It will consist of TWO 30 minute sessions from 2:25-3:25p and focus on Math & English. National Honor Society students will be available to assist students in the other academic areas.

Starting Monday February 12th-There will no longer be a late bus available to transport students home. Students need to make their own transportation arrangements home.

Southington High School is offering this tuition-free, innovative program to students who are struggling in at least two of the four core content areas (English, social studies, math, and science).

The after school Learning Academy will be dedicated to helping struggling ninth and tenth grade students develop better study habits and give them the opportunity to complete homework and other school-related tasks in a controlled, disciplined environment.

The program will:

  • help students overcome organizational and time management issues.
  • help students complete their homework assignments and/or long-term projects.
  • check homework for accuracy and neatness.
  • engage students into conversations regarding study skills.
  • teach students self-monitoring skills.

The program will be for all students who are struggling and are willing to embrace the help that may be necessary to increase their level of success. It will run from October 16, 2017, to May 31, 2018. Should you decide to enroll your child, it must be with the understanding that your child will attend for the remainder of the semester and all established rules will be followed. The Learning Academy will meet on Monday and Thursday from 2:25 to 3:55 P.M., and transportation home for each student who receives busing during the regularly scheduled school day will be provided at no cost.
