Academic Support

  • ROAR Tutoring: After school college tutors facilitate learning and studying on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays after school from 2:30-4:00 p.m. in the Library and Rooms 16 and 44.  The college tutors work closely with Jordan teachers so they are aware of classroom expectations, concepts and skills, and upcoming assessments and assignments.  Students who are attending ROAR Tutoring are finding great levels of success in the classroom.
  • Library-The library is open before school, at lunch, and after school for students who need to complete assignments, do research, read or who seek assistance.

Socio-Emotional Support
