Academic Remediation a Huge Success

Academic Remediation a Huge Success

Academic Remediation was a huge success! Students were able to use the 70-minute period to see teachers for tutoring, complete any missing or make up assignments, meet with the Counselors, practice for the ACT or participate in a spiritual activity.

Here’s what a few Saints had to say about the gift of time in Academic Remediation:

” I was so grateful for the extra time.” – Maggie H. ’22

“What a wonderful thing it is for us to be able to attend a school that cares enough to focus on the classes we need extra help in.” – Kyleigh A. ’23
