    The Advisor Program

    Each student is assigned to a faculty advisor who serves as a contact for students to work with, talk to and confide in. Advisors are available to their advisees as needed, and meet formally every week to review progress and discuss challenges. Advisors will communicate frequently with parents and parents are always welcome to contact the advisors for updates on their son's progress.


    Nightly Study Hall

    All students are required to attend study hall for two hours per night, five nights a week (Sunday - Thursday). The faculty closely monitors study hall and aids students who may need extra support or guidance. This quiet time is designated for students to complete their daily homework assignments, study for tests and work on projects. Cell phones and other electronic devices are silenced during study hall to ensure the entire two hours is devoted to school work.


    Extra Help

    Teachers are available in their classrooms every day after school and this dedicated time does not conflict with other activities. This is a great time for students to ask questions and review material with their teachers. If grades slip below a certain threshold, students will be required to attend extra help with their teachers.


    Afternoon Study Hall

    If a student's academic performace becomes a concern and extra help time was not used appropriately, students are assigned to afternoon study hall. This time is to be used to work on the specific subjects that the student is having difficulty in. Proctored by faculty members, this study hall is held Monday thru Thursday from 2:30 - 3:30pm.


    Academic Campus (AC)

    Proctored study halls are held on the weekends for students who need additional structured support to ensure their academic success.


    The Student Assistance Program

    The main focus of the SAP Program is on organization, study skills, note taking, test preparation and time management of the students' five academic classes. The Student Assistance Program's teachers are capable of tutoring every subject taught at St. Thomas More School.
