We believe that students have the potential to achieve all of their aspirations when they are in an environment that does not marginalize.
The Student Support Center has become a hub of activity over the past several years. We are home to our Virtual High School classes, Peer tutoring and writing Center, and our Student Run Help Desk. Please click on the links below for more information about each section.
New to the tutoring center this year is a writing support center. Tutors will work with students to help improve their understanding of the writing assignments, help develop ideas, revise a draft or work on areas of grammar, style, citation or formatting. Tutors can proofread and make suggestions but cannot edit papers.
