Services for Parents and Guardians (included in tuition fees)
In addition to the support systems provided for our students, The Academy offers parents/guardians many opportunities for feedback, education and support.
Parent, Guardian and Staff Ongoing Communication
Teachers remain in constant communication throughout the school year to keep parents/guardians informed. Telephone calls and e-mails keep parents and guardians abreast of students’ successes and areas for improvement.
Parent/guardian teacher interviews are held mid-semester and include the parents/guardians, the student and all of the students’ teachers. By having all of those who work with the student present, we are able to provide a “full picture” of the students’ progress in school.
Parent/guardian workshops are held throughout the year to allow families to meet and discuss relevant and current issues. Guest speakers present the most current information on topics such as:
- harm reduction
- the “teen brain”
- post-secondary transition
Informal Counseling Support
Being a small, intimate school we learn a great deal about our students and their families. Parents often turn to our in-house counselor to receive support and feedback on non-academic issues that youth face in today’s society.
